Our opinion on the Galon d'Or Beach

Adresse of the Galon d'Or Beach : D25 17390 La Tremblade

First beach of the wild coast of La Tremblade coming from Ronce-les-Bains, the beach of Galon d’Or takes its name from a shipwreck of a Spanish galleon in the 15th century…proof that navigation is difficult in the sector…and that currents are strong. Even if swimming is monitored in July and August, we will be very careful.

At the level of the main access, the beach form a kind of cove almost closed by a sandy point (continuity of the Spanish tip). On the right side, we reach the center of Ronce-les-Bains.

The environment is sublime (Natura 2000 zone of the marsh of Galon d’Or) with a wide biodiversity inside the beautiful forest of Courbe. As indicated at the level of the access, the dune is fragile and can collapse by sector, it is disadvised to leave marked trails. Moreover quicksand are indicated…

Good spot for surfing and kitesurfing facing Oléron.

Large free parking and quick access to the beach from the latter. To get to this beach, take the D25 towards Royan. It is the first indicated beach with the center of Ronce-les-Bains (sign indicating the parking of Galon d’Or, limited height at the level of the access). Dogs are prohibited from June 1st to September 30th.
