From La Palmyre to Ronce-les-Bains, 20 km,
a half-day including some pauses by the sea
 and walks in the forest

We suggest you take the D25, the main road between La Palmyre and Ronce-les-Bains, approximately 20 kilometres.

At the big roundabout of La Palmyre, go in the direction of La Coubre, Ronce-les-Bains.

The road follows the bay of Bonne Anse up to the crossroads, where you will find indicated on the left, the small road which leads to the car park of La Coubre lighthouse.

La Coubre lighthouse deserves a special visit.

For this route of exploration and discovery, we suggest continuing on the D25, for approximately 4 km up to the forest house of La Bouverie, from where a small road on the left leads to the Côte Sauvage.

 

 

 

The Tour of Gardour

The D25 continues, wending up and downhill and following the line of the dunes, up to the Tour of Gardour.

You should stop in the car park near to the panel marked " Tour du Gardour, panoramic view " and take the footpath for about 100 metres which leads to the metal tower that acts as a geodesic site.

At this point 60 metres above sea level, it is good to take time to appreciate the panoramic view of the forest, the ocean and the inside of the peninsula of Arvert.

 

 

 

 

 

The "Pointe Espagnole"

The road then descends quickly and at approximately 2 km after the Tour du Gardour, take the small signposted forest road " Pointe Espagnole " on the left.

This road ends in a car park where you can leave the car and follow the path which leads, through the dunes, to the sea.

The name Pointe Espagnole comes from the wreck in 1823, of a Spanish vessel.

The impressive waves come crashing down on to the particularly fine sand.

The view extends as far as the Saint-Trojan's dunes, on the island of Oléron.


Ronce-les-Bains

The D25 then goes towards Ronce-les-Bains passing the beaches of the resort, just in front of the island of Oléron, the beach of l'Embellie, the beach of Galon d'Or and the beach of La Cèpe.
