The Destination Royan Atlantique offers many possibilities to make a horseback ride on the beach or in the forest, around Royan. This is an opportunity to rediscover the territory differently, at the pace of your mount. Or, why not, to treat yourself to an internshiphorse riding in Charente-Maritime.
Saddle up for a horseback ride on the beach
During your holidays or for a weekend in Royan, we recommend a horseback riding by the sea on the Wild Coast. An idyllic setting to enjoy a great breath of iodized air with its 20 km of fine sandy beaches...
We start the walk a little after the Anse car park at the exit of La Palmyre. We cross the dune to the Bonne Anse Bay. Then, we walk along in the direction of the Coubre lighthouse. From there, the beach of the Wild side reveals a vast playground conducive to galloping in the sand. If the ocean is mild, we let go by riding the waves. Exhilarating!
You can extend the horseback ride in the forest of La Coubre by borrowing the marked trails. Under the maritime pines, we reconnect with nature in peace and forget the stress of everyday life. Walking, trotting or galloping, you choose your pace according to your feelings!
For an unforgettable memory, we plan the walk at the end of the day for the sunset over the sea...
