The seaside resorts in Loire-Atlantique in the Pays-de-la-Loire. But in their hearts, they belong to Brittany (before 1956, Loire-Atlantique was in Brittany), which is why we think that the beaches in Loire Atlantique are in Southern Brittany. There generally are sandy beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. There are only small coves on the Wild Coast (from Pouliguen to Batz-sur-Mer).

The beaches of Vendée are located south of Loire-Atlantique. The destination is very family-oriented with sand as far as the eye can see.
