Between La Rochelle & the resort of Royan, Sequoia Parc is a perfect spot for enjoying the Atlantic coast with its superb sandy beaches.

Ask at the tourist office about visits to the oyster beds at Marennes (5k). The island of Oléron (15k) offers a superb stretch of sandy beach at La Brée les Bains, the morning fish market at the picturesque port of La Cotinière and a bird park specialising in breeding rare & endangered species. Royan (24k south) has beaches of pale fine sand & to the north lies Rochefort, built in the 17thC to protect the coast from raids by the English.
