Gather up the family and set off to discover the La Palmyre Zoo, only a few minutes from the beaches and conveniently close to your Sandaya campsite! In the heart of this naturally green area, beneath the pines of the vast La Coubre forest on the shores of the Atlantic, come and meet the great apes, lions, elephants and giant tortoises of the La Palmyre Zoo. As you explore its paths you’ll be able to discover all about the zoo’s conservation work to help save many of the world’s threatened species. Since its creation by Claude Caillé in 1966, the zoo has constantly expanded its actions in favour of protection, research and education.
Your Sandaya family campsite, located close nearby, enjoys the same very special natural environment: under the maritime pines of the La Coubre forest, half-way between Royan and the Île d’Oléron. Setting off from your holiday rental accommodation, it will take you only a few minutes by bike to reach the waves of the Atlantic Ocean! Whether you’re staying in a fully-equipped mobile home, under the canvas of a tent or in the comfort of your own campervan, you’ll be able to enjoy the many facilities purpose-designed for your leisure and pleasure here in the heart of our top-of-the-range campsite: bathing area with waterslides, river-lagoon, heated swimming pools and whirlpool baths, wellness area with sauna, hammam and spa, petanque courts and multisports grounds... plus of course the campsite’s free children’s clubs and their activities for all the little campers!
