Departing from the hotel in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, hop on your bike and head for the cycle paths along the coast. Reserved for cyclists and pedestrians, the cycle network in the Vendée boasts over 900 km of cycle paths, including short circuits and longer loops. Ideal for exploring the "coast of light" and the rich historic and natural heritage at your own pace.
This 4.2 km long periodically flooded passage is probably one of the longest underwater roads in the world. It links the mainland to the island of Noirmoutier at low tide. You can reach the island on this unique passage from Beauvoir-sur-Mer - a rather mythical experience !
