Activities

Although the first spa bath regulations in Les Sables d’Olonne date from 1816, it was not until 1825 that the first thermal baths appeared, featuring the famous Bathing machines, frequented by the aristocracy. The spa baths still exist, but are now adapted to 21st century needs.

Games, competitions, sporting activities, swimming for beginners for clubs with a pool. The beach club is a good option for combining the beach with leisure. Some clubs require the presence of an accompanying adult, information available from the club of your choice.

Tide time

HOW DO TIDES WORK?
There are two high tides and two low tides a day – one tide every 6 hours. The tide is either coming in or going out.
The amplitude of these tides is expressed by a coeffi- cient 3 (20 to 120).
The higher this is, the further the sea will go out at low tide.
During spring tides, the sun aligns itself with the moon and the tidal coefficient is the highest of the year.
These tides occur approximately every 6 months, in spring time and autumn.
