Sports and Leisures

Here, in the Ile d’Oléron and the Marennes basin, on land or at sea, you can do any kind of sport that takes your fancy!

Whether you’re an occasional practitioner or a confirmed sportsperson, you can use your sport to get to know our territory.  Choose from delightful forest strolls, wander along a beach or in the heart of the marshes.  There are more than 160km of cycle paths and don’t forget that the island does not have any mountains to climb!

If you prefer water sports – we have an extraordinary playground with an ocean-facing coast ideal for board-sports whereas our eastern coast, better protected, enables the novice sailor to ride the waves around Fort Boyard.

Add to the above our 9-hole golf course, the Ileo aquatic complex and our spa resorts – the perfect way to create a perfect holiday!
