La Tranche sur Mer is one of the region’s most popular resorts and it’s not hard to see why with 5 miles of white sandy beaches. The resort overlooks the Ile de Re. During peak season you can enjoy a boat tour around the Ile de Re and out to the impressive Fort Boyard. In the evenings the resort comes alive with live music and street entertainment.
La Rochelle is an hour’s drive away and is fascinating for a day out. Its historical past is very much evident in the fortresses that you can see, some of which you can visit. If you carry on a bit further you can reach the Ile de Re. This island is brilliant for cycling around and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy delicious seafood here too.
The local area is good for keen cyclists with the Velodyssey passing through the region. The Velodyssey path runs down the whole of the French Atlantic coastline – meaning you can tackle a little of it, or a lot! There are many spots en route that go close to the beaches where you can enjoy a cooling dip.
