Things to do when camping in Charente-Maritime

The department’s relationship to the sea is evident in the numerous things to do while on a camping holiday in Charente-Maritime. Many of the best activities in the department concentrate on the coast, where the waves of the Atlantic Ocean have created endless beaches, coves and bays bathed in beauty. The flow of the tides are ideal for water sports, so campers can indulge in jet skiing, windsurfing, canoeing and surfing.

Plage de la Conche des Baleines and Plage du Peu Ragot are just two of the many blissful beaches on Île de Ré, a picturesque island access by the Pont de Re Bridge from La Rochelle. A haven for nature lovers, the Réserve naturelle nationale de Lilleau des Niges is primed for scenic strolls. Cultural and historical highlights of the island include Phare des Baleines Lighthouse and Abbaye Notre-Dame-de-Ré.

Another popular island, featuring the stunning beaches of Plage de Gatseau, Plage de Boyardville and Plage de Vert Bois, Île d'Oléron also boasts striking areas of natural beauty at Saint-Trojan Forest and the woodlands of Domaniale des Saumonards. Enjoy lovely walking and cycling trips through nature before gaining an insight into the history of the island by visiting Fort Boyard, Île d'Aix, Phare de Chassiron Lighthouse and Citadelle du Château d'Oléron.

With a few campsites in and around Royan, you’ll be treated to all the attractions that a good seaside resort should offer. Campers can enjoy some nice beaches and great places to go with the kids including Planet Exotica Zoo and Coolongalook Adventure Park.

Nestled on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and featuring numerous tourist attractions celebrating the sea, the city of La Rochelle makes for a worthwhile day trip. Invest some time at the brilliant La Rochelle Aquarium before visiting the Maritime Museum of La Rochelle or Port Des Minimes Marina. If you decide to pitch up near Les Mathes, you will be treated to a gorgeous stretch of golden sandy beach at La Palmyre and the chance to see the exotic animals at Palmyre Zoo.

Exploring the heart of the department allows campers to immerse themselves in the history and culture of Saintes, a beautiful city with top attractions that include the Roman amphitheatre of Saintes and the Arch of Germanicus.

Lying to the east of Saintes, the famous brandy-producing town of Cognac tempts visitors with the promise of insightful distillery tours and delicious tastings. Marvel at the masses of brandy barrels in the cellars on grand tours at Remy Martin Cognac or Hennessy.
