Coast and nature

With nearly 70 km of coast and 9 municipalities out of 28 by the sea, the La Rochelle agglomeration boasts an exceptional location against the backdrop of the Atlantic.

  • Beaches
    Plage de la Concurrence at the heart of town, right by the gateway to the Vieux Port
    Plage des Minimes, just a short distance from the pleasure port.
  • Boat trips
    Boat tours, trips, and transfers between the islands of the Pertuis d’Antioche strait
    Excursion around Fort Boyard
  • Running
    It goes without saying that La Rochelle is a “green” and athletic city. People here run, go sailing and cycle all year long, in what can only be described as a dream lifestyle.
  •  Cycle route
    Created based on 184,483 responses and a hailed by 768 municipalities, a questionnaire organised by the FUB (Federation of Bicycle Users) placed La Rochelle at the top of the list of cyclist-friendly cities with between 50,000 and 100,000 inhabitants.
  • Marais de Tasdon
    Located two kilometres as the crow flies from our hotel in La Rochelle, the Marais de Tasdon acts as the main biodiversity hub in the La Rochelle area. It is to preserve these 124 hectares of prairie, woodland, marshland, ponds and other humid zones that a rehabilitation project started here.
  • Pleasure port
    With more than 5,000 docking places, La Rochelle’s pleasure port is one of the largest in France and the largest on the Atlantic coast.
  • Fishing port
    More than just a fishing port, the Chef Baie-La Rochelle port area is a real multiservice hub, entirely equipped to meet the requirements of professionals in the seafood sector.
