Beaches Sion-sur-l'Ocean

One of the few cliff areas in the Vendée is to be found at Sion-sur-l'Ocean, and even amongst the cliffs there are a few sandy beaches in the sheltered coves heading north from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, on the Corniche Vendéenne (coastal road). The low cliffs are punctuated by small sheltered coves and beaches and it makes for a great walk even in bad weather when the rough seas spray up between rocks. It is also ideal for those who like to potter in the rock pools.
There is reasonable car parking along the Corniche and it is ideal for a pleasant walk.
At the northern end of the town the rocks give way to a beautiful sandy beach which is the start of many kilometres of beaches backed by dunes and then the forest de pays de monts.
Although the car park is a reasonable size it soon gets filled up in the peak season. On the beach there are refreshment huts and toilets are close by.
