Le Domaine du Clarys
CAMPING BY THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
For a truly rejuvenating holiday, book a stay at a campsite by the Atlantic Ocean. The western side of France extends all the way from Brittany to Nouvelle-Aquitaine, passing through Pays de la Loire on the way. Whether holidaying as a family or with friends, the ocean coast offers plenty in the way of places to explore and discover. From beaches and the heritage of coastal resorts to water activities, entertainment and leisurely relaxation, your stay promises to be an unforgettable experience.
The Atlantic coast is known for its many sandy beaches. Throughout the year, they invite you to top up your tan, have fun on the sand or try your hand at water sports like surfing, standup paddleboarding, kitesurfing, sea kayaking, etc. Spread out your towel and enjoy a moment of relaxation or sport — whichever helps you to disconnect from everyday life.
Saint Jean de Monts is a seaside resort on the Côte de Lumière in Vendée that attracts many visitors to Pays de la Loire each year for its sandy beaches, pine forests and salt marshes. The beach Plage du Golf is highly appreciated for its unspoiled environment surrounded by dunes. Plage de la Paracou in Sables d’Olonne is also worth checking out. In the Loire-Atlantique department, you can enjoy the charming little coves of Pornic or La Baule.
If you’re passing through New Aquitaine, stop off in Pyrénées-Atlantiques to enjoy the pleasures of the ocean at Biarritz’s Grande Plage, the central beach alongside the casino. It stands out thanks to its surf schools, kids’ club, cafés, restaurants and colourful beach tents. You’re sure to love Saint Jean de Luz and Hendaye too. In Gironde, lay out your towel on one of the beaches of Arcachon Bay, not far from the Dune du Pilat and a number of oyster farms. The Atlantic coast also offers beautiful Breton beaches such as Plage de la Mine d’Or in Pénestin in the department of Morbihan.
The Atlantic coast also boasts unmissable cities that shape the landscape and add to the richness of its historical, cultural and culinary heritage. A camping holiday on the Atlantic coast gives you the opportunity to take cultural outings and explore them.
The mediaeval city of Quimper, in Finistère in Brittany, is a city full of art and history that is worth visiting for its timber framed houses, Saint Corentin Cathedral, its earthenware museum, the Jardin de la Paix gardens and its indoor market in the Saint François market building, among other things.
In Loire-Atlantique, in the Pays de la Loire region, visit Nantes, known for its machines on the island, its castle of the Dukes of Brittany, its plant garden, etc.
Head to Charente-Maritime in New Aquitaine to explore La Rochelle, its old quarter, its old port and its emblematic towers classified as historical monuments. In Gironde, don’t miss Bordeaux, its wine city, its Place de la Bourse and its water mirror, but also its Bassins de Lumières (digital art centre). In the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, take part in the Bayonne festivals, visit the Basque museum, the Sainte Marie cathedral or stroll along the Adour river.
