Beaches La Faute-sur-Mer
As you travel south down the Atlantic coast of the Vendée you finally come to the most southerly beaches in the Vendée . From La Tranche sur Mer 8 kilometres of beaches pass by the town of La Faute-sur-Mer and onward towards the Pointe D'Arcay.
This fragile environment of sand dunes is stabilised by 200 hectares of
pine forest and Holm Oak (evergreen Oak) which were planted nearly 150
years ago. This forest domain then continues on into la réserve
ornithologique de la pointe d'Arçay,
The fine sands are the ideal playground for sun worshipers and sports
enthusiasts. It is the perfect place for sand yachting, wind surfing,
surfing and jogging.
In the forest behind the beach there is a Parcours de Santé (a fitness circuit) for those who really want to keep in shape.
La Plage de Bulugas is the locales sand yachting centre. The fine sand
packs hard on the area between the low and high water marks, making it
the ideal spot.
La Plage de la Barrique is one of the Vendée’s five naturist beaches and looks after the needs of those that want to commune with nature and get that all over tan.
The town of La Faute-sur-Mer has everything needed to make your holiday complete, from shops for beach toys to cafes, bars and restaurants.
