Watersports

Windsurfing

Biscarrosse – beach camping in itself suggests idyllic locations for windsurfers. Biscarrosse is exactly this. We are on the shores of a freshwater lake, 8 miles by 6, which gently shelves, making it ideal for both experts and beginners.

Jard-sur-Mer – for ocean sailing this is indeed an ideal resort. Our small campsite is only 150 yards from the beach where, at one side, there is a superb windsurfing location specifically set up for the sport and patrolled by lifeguards.

La Foret – our small campsite here is 200 yards from an ideal windsurfing beach, sheltered in a horse-shoe bay from the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

Sailing and Boating

Biscarrosse – in our view this magnificent lake, is a boating paradise. You can sail or water-ski and pull up for a picnic on beautiful beaches that can only be reached by boat. A slipway is by our campsite, as are inexpensive mooring facilities.

Surfing and Body-Boarding

Messanges and Les Sables are superb locations for the sport, with magnificent Atlantic rollers. Indeed, the French championships are regularly held on our beaches at Messanges.

Canoeing / Rafting

Our Les Sables campsite in the Vendee is just a short walk away from the Les Salines canoeing centre. Enjoy a leisurely outing along the salt marshes, with canoes available for one, two or three people. If you enjoy the more adventurous our campsite at Messanges has easy access to some more exhilarating white water rafting in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
