Beaches La Tanchet
As you travel south past the Grande Baie des Sables d'Olonne you come to the beach of La Tanchet, separated from le grande plage of Les Sables d'Olonne by an area of low rocks.
The beach is outside the area that is protected by the sea defences of
Chaume and thus receives the full Atlantic swell. This makes for
great breaks and it is thus a favourite with the surfing
There is surveillance on the beach during the summer and there are facilities both on the beach and close by.
The beach can get very busy during the summer season and high tide
reduces the area of sand available is considerably making it difficult
to find space.
The car park on the sea front quickly fills up in the summer months so it is advisable to get there early.
If you tire of the beach you can visit the Zoo
which is just behind the lake at Tanchet, or you can take a walk south
along the coast road where the scenery is rockier with shallow cliffs
and pine woods.
