Beaches la Chaume
Chaume on the north side of the port entrance to Les Sables d'Olonne
was originally on an island before the sea retreated. The coast at
Chaume starts off as rocks with the occasional small sandy beach, there
are however some areas in and around Fort Saint Nicolas which have
sandy or shingle beaches on which rock pools appear at low tide. These
beaches are well sheltered from all but southerly winds.
Bassin d'Ombret near Chaume, is a man made swimming pool on the Côte
Sauvage, which is filled with natural sea water. Access is via the
Corniche du Nouch and it has lifeguards during the season.
Plage de la Paracou is north of Chaume on the Côte Sauvage and is close
to the dunes and the forest. It is a small beach amongst the rocks with
surveillance from June to mid- September and is particularly popular
with fishermen and walkers alike. Dogs are not allowed on this beach
which can be reached from the Route du Bargeouti.
