Our opinion on the Grande Beach

Adresse of the Grande Beach : Av Maurice Perray 85800 Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie

Grande Beach in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie stretches over 3 km from the port to the locality of Jaunay Bridge. The busiest area is in the northern part of the beach at the embankment and the city center of St Gilles. There is a pleasant pedestrian promenade on the sea front with many restaurants and cafe terraces. It is also possible to rent bathing huts in summer.

The northern part (at the port) and the southern part are wilder with dunes and trails to access the beach.

It is the largest and most beautiful beach in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie. Those looking for peace and quiet will have to go south but one will at least be sure to find a place to put one’s towel down.

It is also possible to practice sand yachting and surfing (in summer, surfing is only possible in an area 150 meters north and 200 meters south).
