Water sports combining adventure and adrenaline

After a refreshing dip, or a spot of swimming and relaxing on the sun terrace, it’s time for some water sports and an adrenaline rush. La Faute-sur-Mer and La Tranche-sur-Mer with their superb sandy beaches, extending over several kilometres, are the ideal place to try out surfing, windsurfing,, kite surfing, sand yachting and jet skiing. To get a feel, take a stroll along the beach and observe how the surfers take the waves and catch the wind with their sails. Do you feel ready to brave the elements? Head for the reception and tell us what you fancy so we can help you enjoy an unforgettable holiday in the Vendée.

Water sports suitable for young campers

For family-friendly activities, you should choose a sport that is easily accessible for young children such as kayaking or paddle boarding. This sport which has become very fashionable in the last few years, attracting an increasing number of fans, is a subtle combination of surfing and kayaking. At La Tranche-sur-Mer, you can also try out more unusual sporting activities and water fun. Stretch out with your family on your giant inflatable pulled by a speedboat, and hang on tight! Fun and thrills guaranteed. But what if you prefer something less heart-stopping? Perhaps hiring a pedalo or a sailing excursion is more up your street. And when you get back to the campsite, you can recount your exploits while sipping a delicious cocktail on the terrace by the pool.
