Royan is in an idyllic spot. Situated in the Charente Maritime region of France on the stunning Atlantic Coast, it lies just south of La Rochelle, north of Bordeaux and close to the northern tip of the Gironde estuary. Over the years, it has mastered the art of being a seaside resort par excellence, and is renowned for its sheltered beaches, glorious striped tents, and superb microclimate that rivals anything you might find on the Mediterranean coast. It’s a must-visit destination for all holidaymakers to France’s West Coast. Fortunately, Siblu campsite Bonne Anse Plage is on the doorstep, while holiday parks Les Charmettes and La Pignade are but a short drive away.

Beaches and the great outdoors
Terrific beaches abound on the nearby Côte de Beauté, Côte Sauvage and in Royan itself. There’s the main town beach, La Grande Conche, which has terrific family facilities and lifeguards in high season, and Foncillon, with its open-air seawater swimming pool opposite the Palais du Congrès. Energetic Pontaillac is great for surf enthusiasts and jet-skiers. Pigeonnier and Chay are smaller, quieter coves away from the main fray.
