Our opinion on the Grande Plage

Adresse of the Grande Plage : 50 Bd de la Mer 17340 Châtelaillon-Plage

The large beach of Châtelaillon (Grande Plage) stretches more than 2 km between the marina to the south and Fort Saint-Jean to the north. In the city center, there are two help stations, the first at Barraud street with access for people with reduced mobility and the second north at the Denfert-Rochereau street. There are also bath cabins for rent on the beach at Ocean street level. This beach is often considered as one of the most beautiful in Charente-Maritime (at least around La Rochelle). On the other hand, swimming is impossible at low tide, the sea can retreat for several kilometers (see photos).

This beach is bordered by a beautiful promenade (boulevard of the Sea). At the casino level, there are many restaurants.

On both ends of the beach, you can practice windsurfing, sailing or kitesurfing.

Dogs are allowed on the beach outside of summer (June 1st to September 30th prohibited). Kitesurfing is prohibited from June 15 to September 15.
