BUREAU D'INFORMATION TOURISTIQUE DE SAINT HILAIRE DE RIEZ
Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez boasts more than 12 km of dunes and fine sand beaches leading to the Vendée cliffs and sandy bays.
Whether you want to enjoy the dedicated cycle paths with your family, stroll through the forest or take an invigorating dip in the ocean from a shallow, monitored beach, Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez and Sion-sur-l'Océan offer everything you'll need for a fantastic break outdoors.
A dedicated cycle path and footpath stretches the length of the Vendée cliffs, overlooking the sea and its breathtaking views, numerous secluded bays, caves and rocky outcrops with mysterious and evocative names such as the Trou du Diable ("Devil's Hole"), Chaos, Roche Trouée ("Holed Rock") and Cinq Pineaux ("Five Pineaux"), each with its own myths and legends told by the sea...
And like an echo of these vast spaces, the Marais Breton extends to the outskirts of Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez. As the seasons change, so do the colours of the active salt marshes and bourrines (low-set houses covered with reeds, the most stunning example of which can be found at the Musée du Bois Juquaud).
Information point in July and August.
