Ready to cast off? Make the most of your camping holiday with Sandaya to set sail and conquer the most fabulous seaside landscapes. From the Brittany coasts to the Mediterranean shores, follow us and discover island life amidst the most gorgeous French archipelagos!
Brittany: between towering cliffs & dreamy beaches
Just a stone’s throw from the Brittany shoreline lie untold gems... Drop anchor in one of our Sandaya campsites in Brittany, then come with us as we set sail from the Finistère to explore the Glénan archipelago. Discover seven little islands fringed by white sand and surrounded by transparent seas, you could almost be in the Seychelles!
Set your heading for the Morbihan and the island of Groix, easily accessible from Lorient, a veritable concentration of nature to explore without moderation. Then fall in love with Belle-Île, the largest of the Breton islands is without doubt the one that best deserves its name. Prepare for a holiday vibrant with colour!
Pays de la Loire: islands to cycle
If you have chosen the Vendée as your home port for the summer, you won’t be able to resist a delightful trip to the island of Noirmoutier, praised for its beauty as much as for its gentle way of life. Once safely across the Passage du Gois, simply pedal where your fancy takes you, between beaches, forests and flower-decked villages!
A holiday may always bring new horizons, but nothing beats an excursion to the Île d’Yeu to totally disconnect from the everyday. 23km of unspoilt nature, only disturbed by the sound of the waves and the cry of the seagulls. A true haven of tranquillity!
Nouvelle-Aquitaine: head for the Charente archipelago
Veritable jewel amongst the islands of Charente, Île d’Oléron will never fail to remind you of childhood holidays. The famous Fort Boyard may be a near neighbour, yet it is the island that draws all eyes. Strolling through history at Le Château-d’Oléron, picnicking at the water’s edge on the Gatseau beach, sampling oysters on the harbourside in La Cotinière, your day is certain to be well-filled. And you can count on our Sandaya campsites in the Charente-Maritime when time comes to recharge the batteries.
Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur: pearls of southern France
When camping on the Côte d’Azur a heavenly coastline is yours to enjoy, from end to end. And, as if that wasn’t enough, a string of idyllic islands complete the picture! First comes the island of Porquerolles, “pearl of the Golden Islands”, set in its crystal-clear water. Make it a date on the Notre-Dame beach, voted “the most beautiful beach in Europe”.
Just off-shore from Cannes, it’s the turn of the Lérins Islands to bewitch you. The island of Saint-Honorat, the smallest, invites you to explore its fascinating monastery, whilst Sainte-Marguerite is home to a legendary royal fortress. And need we add that their beaches and the rocky creeks of their calanques are all equally stunning!
Corsica: the Island of Beauty
Corsica is an island that holds an important place in visitors’ hearts. And rightly so since this gem in the Mediterranean is a multi-faceted paradise on earth. Wild thanks to its preserved natural environment, exotic with its paradisiac white sand beaches and turquoise waters, authentic and delicious thanks to its local produce, each journey offers you the chance to discover a little more of this island at your own pace. A small island with infinite potential to be visited without moderation!
Jersey and Guernsey: the Channel Islands
As we have just seen, there is no shortage of beautiful islands in France. Some, off the Cotentin Peninsula, are also well worth a visit: the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey, the most French of the British Isles! Accessible by ferry from several ports in the Manche department, these islands with their Great British charm will delight you in their own way: Jersey, a wild and natural island, is ideal for relaxing with the family. Its beaches and country lanes will appeal to young and old alike. Guernsey, its younger sister, has a rich heritage that history lovers will love. Castles, mansions and museums open their doors to you, as well as Hauteville House, where Victor Hugo lived during his exile.
