La Baule, Le Pouliguen and Pornichet 30.04.2016

Everyone loves ‘The Côte d'Amour’. Europe's most beautiful beach is laid out at your feet.

You can explore a seemingly endless coastline with 9 km of pale sandy coves and a sea that becomes a nautical stadium at high tide. It is known to be one of the ‘most beautiful bays in the world’.

Just to the south is Pornichet, a perfect place for kids, with its innovative resort that lets children and their parents experience diving. At the end of the promenade, Le Pouliguen offers a unique view of the bay. Overlooking the centre of the bay at La Baule is a frothy mix of luxury boutiques, friendly restaurants, and stunning villas. There is also an impressive aquatic stadium and at Benoit beach, the Brittany Polo Club stages a free exhibition match.
