The Bay of La Baule, an unmissable port of call during your holiday
A member of the very select Club of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World, the Bay of La Baule is also one of the longest in Europe. Which is hardly surprising given that its sandy beach stretches for nearly 9km! And all that means endless opportunities for swimming, lazing and gliding over the ocean waves during your campsite stay in the Loire-Atlantique.
And for the rest of the time? Simply savour the good life at your 4 or 5 star campsite: sports activities, family entertainment, relaxation on the terrace of your mobile home or a lazy afternoon nap in your tent, feel free to choose your own programme of activities. The Bay of La Baule wasn’t enough for you? Then it’s time to hit the swimming pools and waterslides of the bathing area. Into the water everyone!
Discover the Bay of La Baule with the family
If your kids won’t hear of anything other than a seaside holiday, their campsite stay near the Bay of La Baule certainly won’t disappoint them! Its long ribbon of soft fine sand will be the setting for their best-ever adventures: building sandcastles, trying every possible watersport and sampling those unique La Baule lollipops known as “niniches”, with their toes in the water of course!
As night falls, head for Le Pouliguen at the western end of the bay, just south of Guérande. Its famous seafront promenade is the place to be for every family: a veritable succession of entertaining stalls, fairground rides and sweet-sellers guaranteed to delight all your little campers!
Discover the Bay of La Baule as a couple
If the immense La Baule beach is the main attraction for most holidaymakers, there’s no shortage of treasures waiting for you beyond the seafront. Veritable symbols of this renowned seaside resort, the period villas surrounded by pine groves each reveal themselves more elegant than the last as you enjoy a deliciously romantic walk. Art-Deco, Belle Époque or Moorish, have fun picking out your favourite holiday home!
As you follow the bay to the west, the family beaches are gradually replaced by more secretive creeks, far from the holiday crowds. The one known as Pierre Plate, at Le Pouliguen, is quite simply irresistible with all the appearance of a Polynesian atoll!
