Lighthouses built in 1900 overlooking the small village harbour!     

South of Royan from the high chalk cliff at the end of the large beach, lies Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, a seaside resort at the mouth of the Gironde estuary. A little further South again is another cliff, Vallières, with its lighthouse built in 1900 overlooking the small village harbour. These two ‘mountains’ are wonderful places for walks, with maintained paths offering superb panoramic views over the ocean and the carved coastline. Protected in the middle, the Vallières ledge borders an ancient, lively town centre as well as a long beach of soft sand.

A very active beach

The jewel in the crown of Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, this long beach more than 2 kilometres long, in the middle of the commune, has kept its wild character. Edged by a pine forest, a wide range of activities are on offer here. With sailing taking pride of place, the commune is a classified station voile (sailing centre). The beach of Saint-Georges-de-Didonne is also the regional capital of sand-karting.
