Towns and resorts of the region are well served by the A10 motorway which crosses the area from North to South, parallel to the coast.

Most towns and resorts are only a few kilometres away from the entries/exits of the A10 motorway, exits n°33, n°34, n°35, n°36, n°37, n°38.

From the A10, the French and European network of motorways makes the big European cities easily and safely accessible.
