In the Marennes Basin as well as in Oléron Island, children will definitely enjoy themselves. There are enough beaches to suit everyone's taste and "have a blast". With its calm sea, Marennes beach and the beaches on the east side of Oléron make ideal playgrounds for toddlers.
The best beaches for young surfers are the ones facing east. You can sit back and enjoy this little paradise since Oléron Island received 5 blue flags in 2005 for its high seawater quality.
There is plenty more to do in Marennes-Oléron.. For those looking to play "Idiana Jones" in the forest there are adventure playgrounds situated in Saint-Trojan-les-Bains and Marennes.
For those wanting to enjoy a life size game in a real castle and discover its legends, choose from 3 sites: Fort Louvois, la Citadelle du Château d'Oléron and la Citadelle de Brouage. This original discovery game of leads was created by the Charente-Maritime regional council and is fun for both kids and grown-ups. Follow Antoines' adventures while you learn the fantastic history of these fortresses.
And there is more.. a kite school, horse riding centres, sailing centres, surf, blokart and also several little trains to explore Oléron.

"I love this island and I come often because the ocean is great. As soon as I see the waves, I need to swim and dive, it's sooo cool !!
I love surf, bodyboard, you can do it all year round. I also love all acrobatic sports, jumping from one tree to the next in the parks, 3meters or 14meters above the ground, it feels like flying !"
