The Coubre beach seems to have made a pact with time: nothing changes here. Located on the wild coast of the Poitou-Charentes region, this fine-sand beach looks like a scene into which wanders some castaway tired of the fatigue of the waves. It is one of the finest beaches in the west.
The old sandbanks cover vessels that were stranded on the shore, and are now part of this heavenly wild landscape. Its unique white and red lighthouse cuts across the horizon. From there, you can enjoy a fantastic panorama of the whole area.
The effort to climb this lighthouse is worthwhile. And the best part is at sunset when the tide goes out: the dunes form some coves lapped by white foam. It is certainly one of the most impressive beaches, thanks to the pure state of nature and to conservation efforts. This natural wonder makes you want to get lost in its miles and miles of white sand.
