There is also a lighthouse in this area. Due to I have never seen a lighthouse before I wanted to go and see it. Fortuneatly my co-drives shared the same interests and so we went there. Look at it when you are there. Please read the following tips to get more information about the lighthouse.more
If the weather is good it is also possible to see the mouth of the Gironde into the Atlantic ocean. In this area the gironde is already very tall so that someone could think that it is a bay ... but it is a river who goes into the sea .... Just click on the picture to see it.Don´t miss this light house, it is really good viewing point!more
This is one of the phantastic views you will have upstairs! You can see the ocean at all its magnificance and begin to dream of exotic places ... and maybe (how knows??) you will see a ship there, that loads you up and brings you to place you have ever dreamed to go .....:-)))more
Climb the lighthouse! It is worth to go up, because their are just 200 stairs to walk .... and you won't regret it afterwards!When I was standing on the ground I had to take this interesting picture of the staircase which goes up ... It looks interesting in my opinion and the eyes want to follow the stairs up.more
Pointe de la Coubre is located between La Tremblade and La Palmyre. It can be found in a good atlas too, but unfortuneatly not in the VT locations list!
It will be a great tour if you take it from Cognac or Bordeaux.
Bring some good shoes (because of the sand) and a warm jacket (because of the wind), when visiting Pointe de la Coubre.
Photo Equipment: Bring a camera with you, when you are as photo-addicted as I am .... :-)) The landscape and staircase is worth to photograph ....
It must be wonderful to go jogging on the beach in the evening (when the sun sets) or in the morning!
And in Summer it will be great to go swimming here!
I am going back there one day.
It was a windy and cloudy sunday afternoon when we came to the beach near La Palmyre ... and it was a lot of fun to watch the high waves of the ocean. This is interesting for someone who lives in a country that have no sea. Just have a look at the picture to see the stormy waves of the ocean.more
