La Barre-de-Monts beach, the ideal holiday destination!
Set between the pine grove and the ocean, not one, not two, but three beaches await you near La Barre-de-Monts, a stellar family seaside resort in the Vendée. That means three times more laughter, more swimming and more sports activities of every kind!
With the island of Noirmoutier just opposite and the jetty for a boat trip to the Île d’Yeu close by, your Sandaya campsite will be the ideal starting point from which to explore the wonders of the Vendée. You’ll also have everything you need on-site to enjoy a fantastic camping holiday: comfortable accommodation, the sea nearby, free children’s clubs and sports activities for all ages.
Visit La Barre-de-Monts beach with the family
Just a few short steps from La Barre-de-Monts, you’ll find a beach to suit every member of the family: La Grande Côte beach is a favourite spot for surfers and kite-surfers, Fromentine beach is popular for bathing under the watchful eye of the lifeguards, and La Bergère beach is ideal for some lovely strolls along the water’s edge.
At La Barre-de-Monts, you’ll be beside the sea... but there’s also the pine grove to explore on foot, on horseback or on a bike! 2,300 hectares of forest where campers big and small can run free and chill out surrounded by nature. Take the opportunity to climb up Le Pey de la Blet lookout which culminates at a height of 25 metres: the view of the marshes, forest and ocean is breathtaking.
Visit La Barre-de-Monts beach as a couple.
While waiting to embark for the Île d’Yeu with your special someone, use the time to explore the Breton-Vendée marshes and sample the delicious seafood specialities. A little Charentais wine to wash it all down and you’ll be fit to go for the rest of the day!
When you are not out at sea, explore the area by bicycle! Leave the car behind and ride in any direction you like along the 38 km of cycle paths that will take you to the beach or to one of the many treasures of the Vendée.
