Attractions l'Aiguillon-sur-Mer
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 to start.
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.
