The Beaches of Saint-Palais-sur-Mer

There are four beaches. From the quietest to the more animated, there is a beach to suit everyone in Saint-Palais-sur-Mer. Everyone can be happy there.

The beach of Nauzan

Coming from Royan by driving along the coast, the first beach - straddling Vaux-sur-Mer and Saint-Palais-sur-Mer is the beach of Nauzan.

Peaceful, sheltered and sunny - "a bathtub" say my friends in Soulac - it welcomes every tourist from 3 months to 80 years old.

The babies toddle along in their nappies, the grandmothers tuck up their skirts and bathe their varicose legs in the salt water.

It is an ideal place for parents with their young children and grandparents.

The children at the sailing school, restricted by their life jackets, are learning to sail in small boats under the attentive eyes of young monitors.

A track for rollers and scooters, which unfortunately is not in the shade, runs along the beach.

The beach of Saint-Palais

The beach of Saint-Palais, in the town centre, is more fashionable.

The club offers different activities for the 8, 6 and 12 year old children.

Teenagers meet regularly in the corner of rocks to talk and make dates for surfing parties and also arrange dates for parties in the evening.…in the bushy park which surrounds the lake.

The beach has a merry-go-round, puppet theatre, circuses and other entertainment until nightfall.

Naturally, you will also find café terraces, pancake shops and ice creams, common to most seaside resorts.

The beach of Le Platin

By continuing on the path of the Customs Officers up to the Pont du Diable rocks, you will arrive at the beach of Le Platin, a little bit dangerous for bathing because of its rocks near the surface of the water and more appropriate for sunbathing and for people familiar with the region.

The beach of La Grande Côte

For surfing nothing is better than the Grande Côte, an immense beach lined with bunkers from the last war, not aesthetic but classified as historic monuments.

The young sportsmen meet at high tide there, whether it is at 6 o'clock in the morning, during the day or at 9 o'clock in the evening. Many lovers of wind and wide open spaces come here as well.

One sometimes sees horses galloping (but usually out of season).
