The beach at Les Conches spreads as far as the eye
can see southwards towards la Terriere and northwards towards La Rocher. This is
an amazing expanse of beach the Atlantic ocean caresses its golden shores, and
is backed first by sand dunes and then by forests of pine and Holm oak which
were planted to stabilize the dunes.
The main car park is almost on the
beach and there are
a few beach side cafes open during the summer season.
Further back in the village there are some shops for beach goods and a good
surfing shop as well as cafes and Restaurants.
All year round you will
find surfers on the beach as the surf here can be as good as anywhere on the
Atlantic Coast of the Vendée.
In all seasons the beach is very popular for
sea angling especially after storms, and at low tide there are cockles to be
gathered not to mention that great pastime of beachcombing for shells and
Behind the dunes, amongst the forest runs a tarmac track
which at intervals has openings to the beach. The farther away from the car park
the longer the walk to the beach, but on arriving, after a pleasant stroll
through the forest, the less crowded the beach that one finds. It should be
noted that the area half way between La Terriere and Les Conches, though not an
official nudist beach, has been very popular for many years amongst those who
desire an all over tan. There is a very good track for walking between the dunes
and the forest which is part of the coastal walkway that runs virtually the
whole length of the Vendée.
