Access to La Plage des Granges is via the D80A south of Brem-sur-Mer. The final length of beach from Sauveterre towards Brem-sur-mer is cut off from La Plage des Dunes by le chenal du Havre that runs from the north end of Brem-sur-Mer.
This is one of the most under-rated beaches in the Vendée. Car parking
is close to the beach and the short walk beside the small lake formed by
the barrage across le chenal du Havre is a pleasant place to picnic or
do a spot of fishing. The barrage is in fact a bridge that enables one
to access the beach that extends to La Plage des Dunes.
This wide expanse of fine sand is popular out of season for those who
like a quiet walk on virtually deserted sands, it is also popular with
beach fishermen. The beach & dunes are backed by the Forest d'Olonne
through which there are some enjoyable walks.
Though a few surfers use this stretch of beach there have been comments
on surf websites that this is an under-rated beach by the French, as it
has all the breaks that any of the other more popular surfing beaches
have, plus easy parking.
The beach south towards the beach at Sauveterre is also used by the naturists.
