Walks in the Royan area


Discover the Royan area on foot, by bicycle or even on horseback.

With sandy beaches, dunes, cliffs, pines trees and oak forests, your walks in the Royan area offer a gloriously rich and diverse landscape.


Ideas for walks directly from the campsite

Enjoy direct access to the cycle paths and walking paths from 5-star campsite Bois Soleil.

  • Walk along the Suzac headland (pointe de Suzac): on leaving the campsite, take the path towards the cliffs. Following the coast, you will arrive at a vast meadow area, the ideal place for watching the sunset over the ‘Côte de beauté’ (Beautiful Coast).
  • Walk in Suzac Forest (direct access to the walking path from the campsite): discover its pine trees and green oaks on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. The Suzac Forest protected area is the perfect sport for shaded walks and strolls.
  • Directly accessible from the campsite, via the Suzac headland, the coastal ‘Customs path’ winds around the rocky coast overlooking the cliffs and bays beneath the pines and arbutus trees, all the way to Meschers-sur-Gironde.

Another suggestion

The Vallières path: the Charles Martel walking path and cycle track leads you to the Saint-Georges-de-Didonne port and the Vallières lighthouse with beautiful views of the bay of Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, the Suzac headland in the distance, the ‘carrelets’ (traditional fishing huts built on stilts), and views of the Gironde estuary.
