      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.

The 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.

The 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.
