The Point At Aiguillon sur Mer
La plage, Pointe de l'Aiguillon.
The beach at
Pointe l'Aiguillon is the farthest south in the Vendée. The Vendée does
continue south for several more kilometres into the Baie de l'Aiguillon otherwise known as the Anse de l'Aiguillon, but this is mainly mud flats.
There are several worthwhile beaches on this quiet peninsular, they are
mainly small but if solitude is your penchant then this is a good place
The waters are not particularly clean as this is the estuary of the
River Lay. There are areas of rocks with interesting pools at low tide
where one can easily collect enough mussels for the family.
The main attractions of the point, besides the beaches, are the Nature
Reserve, and the offshore mussel farms. In the Nature Reserve during the
autumn and again in the spring birds, mainly ducks, geese and waders,
stop off on their migratory journeys. The offshore mussel farms supply
over 20% of France’s national production and as such this is one of its
main mussel producing areas.
