In Pays de la Loire there are many kid-friendly beaches. Close to the UK, with warm (but not too hot) Summers, the Pays de la Loire is ideal for families, with beaches, lively theme parks, cycling, watersports and more – all geared to families and very affordable.

'Family plus ' holidays feature budget-friendly prices, family-friendly accommodation, supervised beaches, safe playgrounds and trained personnel running activities. Locations include Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, La Tranche-sur-Mer, Noirmoutier, Piriac-sur-Mer and Notre-Dame-de-Monts.

The beach at St-Brevin, with its long stretch of sand, provides a safe environment with surveillance posts to keep kids safe and clubs to keep them entertained and active. For a touch of chic, try the resort of La Baule. Boasting the longest beach in Europe, you will find enough sand to build a 'château' of fantastical proportions. The 'Club des Courlis' is the perfect place for kids to make new friends. Kids of all ages are catered for!


Look for the blue flag ! There are many blue flag beaches in Pays de la Loire where you know the beaches and water will be clean.
