Beaches of the Vendee
la Terriere beach looking north
La Terriere

This must be one of the finest beaches in the Vendée, it continues on from the beaches of la Tranche sur mer.
There is a vast car park almost on the sands and the waters are under surveillance not only during the main summer season but on weekends in June and September. This beach is consistently awarded the blue flag for cleanliness, and seaweed and other debris that often fouls other beaches further north is never seen here. There are good facilities on the beach and around the car park.

Apart from some good walks behind the dunes there is little else here.
Return to the Beaches of the Vendee to discover more of the vendee's treasures.
This area of the coast is very popular with regular surfers and with novice wave boarders alike and though it is on the Atlantic coast it has protection from the severe south westerly and westerly gales by the Isle de Ré which can be seen on the skyline. Both to the north towards Les Conches and to a lesser extent south towards the light house of La Tranche sur Mer are areas of beach that are used by the Naturist.
