Things to do when camping in Charente-Maritime

Charente-Maritime, as the name suggests, has a proud maritime character, with many of the department’s best things to do focus on and around the coast. The waters of the Atlantic Ocean have carved out beautiful coves and bays with lovely beaches. Water sports providers on the seafront number many, taking advantage of the waves to offer holidaymakers jet skiing, surfing, kayaking and windsurfing.

On the idyllic island of Île de Ré, beaches wrap themselves around the shoreline with stunning examples found at Plage de la Conche des Baleines and Plage du Peu Ragot. The Réserve naturelle nationale de Lilleau des Niges is ideal for walkers who love to stroll through areas of natural beauty, appreciating the views and ambiance. Phare des Baleines Lighthouse and Abbaye Notre-Dame-de-Ré are a great place for culture and history buffs.

On the equally beautiful Île d'Oléron, holidaymakers are treated to yet more lovely beaches, especially at Plage de Gatseau, Plage de Boyardville and Plage de Vert Bois. Peaceful walking and cycling trips can be enjoyed all over the island, especially in Saint-Trojan Forest and the woodlands of Domaniale des Saumonards. Other notable points of interest include Fort Boyard, Île d'Aix, Phare de Chassiron Lighthouse and Citadelle du Château d'Oléron.

If you choose to go on a camping holiday in Charente-Maritime, there aren’t many better places to pitch up than Royan. This vibrant seaside resort town is home to plenty of tourist attractions for the whole family. Kids will love a visit to Planet Exotica Zoo and Coolongalook Adventure Park, or time spent on one of the many beaches where water sports is available. For adults, Église Notre-Dame de Royan and the Central Market are worth a visit.

Perched on the French Atlantic coast, the town of La Rochelle has a wealth of attractions dedicated to the ocean, with top highlights including La Rochelle Aquarium, Port Des Minimes Marina and the Maritime Museum of La Rochelle. A stay at one of our campsites in Les Mathes benefits campers with the chance to enjoy the golden sands of the La Palmyre Beach and the famous Palmyre Zoo.

Holidaymakers who venture into the heart of the department can explore the ancient town of Saintes, which plays host to several historic monuments, namely the Arch of Germanicus and the Roman amphitheatre of Saintes.

Further inland, the sweet smell of Cognac will attract visitors to the eponymous town and birthplace of this famed alcoholic spirit. Savour tastings at Remy Martin Cognac and Hennessy after you explore the cellars packed with brandy barrels on a guided tour.
