    • Very large beach in the city center with very easy access, nearby car parks and a promenade along the coast. What holidaymakers love are also the splendid villas of all eras and styles, which punctuate the edge of the beach. We like to have fun wondering which one is our favorite! Swimming is pleasant, even if there is sometimes a little silt at low tide, let's not forget that we are close to the estuary, but it is not at all a problem to have fun ! Restaurants are not necessarily nearby because the beach is very large, it begins in the city center just after the port and extends to Saint-Georges-de-Didonne. There is access for people with reduced mobility to certain places on the beach near the lifeguard station.

    Large and wide beach with fine sand and nice walking and biking paths. On the other side you can enjoy great oldstyle villas and a few superb new ones too.

    Miles of beautiful white sand, with picturesque blue and white tents to hire. Massive plus point was free WiFi on the beach. Would recommend as a lovely day out with the family, definitely a place to relax for an day, or even just an afternoon.

    Excellent beach. Sand is very flat under the water so there’s a lot of space to play in the surf without going too deep too quickly. Very warm too.

    Vraisemblablement une des plages mystiques de la ville de ROYAN, située en plein centre-ville, la plage de la Grande Conche mérite réellement que l'on viennent se délasser sur l' étendue importante...
