Rendez-vous in Noirmoutier island 85330 Noirmoutier fr

The Island of Noirmoutier in Vendée has been connected to the mainland by a bridge ever since 1971. This is a very convenient crossing, but it is extremely important to stop and admire the extraordinary natural curiosity of the island: The Passage du Gois; a true road "under the sea" stretching 4.2 km (2.6 mi) that connects Beauvoir-sur-Mer to the Island of Noirmoutier when the tide is low

The castle, the perpetual subject of rivalry on the island over the centuries, has given rise to stories of pillage and heroic battles, without ever losing its imposing appearance.

Travelling to/from one of the island's three ports or from one beach to the next, you will pass by salt marshes, forest of pine, and sand dunes, all of which add to the integral charm of the island.
