Beaches close to Nantes

The cities and beaches of the Atlantic Coast are the natural continuation of any stay in Nantes. Beyond the immediate surroundings of our “City of Dukes,” they can easily be visited during a day trip. Further north, the beach towns of La Baule, Pornichet, Le Croisic or La Turballe will charm visitors, where it is possible to combine farniente and shopping. To the South, the more natural and family-oriented beaches of Saint-Brevin-Les-Pins, Pornic, and La Bernerie will enchant any visitor… Finally, the islands of Noirmoutier and d’Yeu will delight all those in search of a more maritime getaway!
