Adresse of the Matha Beach : Rte de Matha 17310 Saint-Pierre-d'Oléron

Matha Beach is the only beach of Saint Pierre d'Oléron. It is located south of the port of Cotinière. Surrounded by sharp rocks, it is the smallest beach of the island. It is bordered by some dunes and is supervised in the summer season. Because of its dimensions and rocks that surround it, interest is very limited. Swimming is only possible at high tide.

To get to this beach from the centre of Saint Pierre d'Oléron take the D274 to the port of La Cotinière. At the port, turn left. Parking spaces are available along the road (about 300 metres away).
