A coastal town with so much to offer!
This coastal town has plenty to offer with its sandy beaches stretching for 1½ miles, 3000-acre of forests and over 2600 hours of sunshine every year.
And what could be more important than the fish and shellfish, fresh from the fishing port in Les Sables d'Olonne: seabass, sole, sardines, shrimps and oysters can be found on market stalls and in the local restaurants.
This is also where the famous "Vendée Globe" round the world single-handed yacht race starts.
The 7th edition of the "Everest of sailing" began in Les Sables d'Olonne on 10 November 2012 and the first skippers should arrive back at the end of January.
