THE VENDEE BEACHES

The vendee is justifiably proud of its Beaches, typically gently sloping with golden sand they have attracted visitors for more than a century to holiday on their shores. There is nothing like blue sea, golden sand and glorious sunshine to conjure up the picture of the ideal holiday and the Vendee has an abundance of all of them.
Below are listed the major beaches running from south to north with a brief description and links to other pages for fuller details and photos.
