Location and orientation
In Saint-Palais-sur-Mer, the atmosphere is reminiscent of the great years of balnearism at the beginning of the 20th century. In the Place du Rhâ, in the centre of the city, shopping malls and modern buildings are located next to superb Belle Epoque villas, nestled not far from there by the sea. The secular attractiveness of the place is due in particular to the five fine sandy beaches that make up the Saint-Palais coastline. Lying on a towel in the warm and comforting sun, you can admire the squares, the legendary rocks that stand in the ocean, but also the Newfoundland lighthouse, which recalls the city's maritime past. Further north, the Grande Côte stretches over 2.5 km of beaches, dunes and forests. The ideal place to rest in the heart of unspoilt nature. The most courageous will take the customs path that passes here, which allows you to admire all the wonders that border Saint-Palais-sur-Mer.The surroundings of Saint-Palais-sur-Mer, between history and nature
To the west of Saint-Palais-sur-Mer, a stopover is required in La Palmyre to discover its superb zoo, but also the wild beauty of the national forest of La Coubre. Then, going up north, it is Marennes-Oleron and the eponymous island that await travellers who are passing through and offer them magnificent landscapes. On the southern part of the coast, it is the beautiful Royan that stands in front of the Atlantic waves. Almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, it offers an astonishing mix of Belle Epoque villas and contemporary architecture.

Old Cognac and its half-timbered houses will give a romantic touch to a stay in Charente-Maritime that will seem too short whatever happens.
Travellers and activities
An escapade through the history of Saint-Palais-sur-Mer and its region begins inexorably with the oldest monument in the town: the lighthouse of Terre-Nègre. The journey back in time continues on the beach of Grande Côte, to discover the blockhouses, initially built by the Wehrmacht on the dunes, but which seem to have been placed on the beach or in the sea since the latter have receded under the influence of marine winds. After a short walk in front of the villa Primavera, one of the most famous on the Côte de Beauté, built in the 20th century, you have to take the Cognac road. The city has many other treasures to offer than its alcohol. Old Cognac is full of architectural treasures, such as the Château de Cognac or the Saint-Léger church. It will be necessary to return to Charente-Maritime to continue this beautiful introduction to the region's heritage.Saint-Palais-sur-Mer in love
