Adresse of the Grande Beach : Promenade de l'Amiral Lafargue 85100 Les Sables-d'Olonne

Grande Beach in Les Sables d'Olonne is the main beach of the seaside resort. Located along the embankment, it stretches for about 1.5 km towards Château d'Olonne. This huge stretch of sand allows everyone to find a place to lay his or her towel even in summer (see our pictures taken in early August). Several children’s clubs are available and there are some activities (beach volleyball, water sports centre).

Some restaurants are set up directly on the sand and it is possible to rent mattresses or beach huts.

The embankment allows one to wander on the seafront away from cars. There are lots of events in summer.

In summer, one has to pay to park in the various car parks.
