there is also a whole host of other water-based activities on offer, too.
And maybe you’ve already heard of stand-up paddle surfing? It’s an up-and-coming beach sport which is easy to master and makes you feel as if you’re walking on water! Standing on a surfboard and armed with a large paddle, explore the coastline of the Île de Ré with Sup Evasion. Trips leave from Loix.
- Canoe hire and guided tours of the salt marshes in Loix
- Kayak, optimist and funboat hire at the sailing school in La Couarde
- Diving at Saint-Martin de Ré
Throughout the year the campsite offers a wide range of cruises complete with informative commentary off the Charente-Maritime coast. Leaving from the port at Saint-Martin-de-Ré (just 13km from the site), jump aboard one of the boats operated by the Compagnie Croisières Inter-Iles and head out to Fort Boyard, La Rochelle or the Ile d’Aix. You can even book your tickets in advance at the reception desk.
