6 essential spots to observe plaice on Destination Royan Atlantique

Along the coast of Destination Royan Atlantique, there are many huts on stilts: the famous squares. Built of wood, some are rather rustic while others are furnished with more comfort. They are generally accessible by a small wooden staircase or a pontoon, more or less long, which connects them to the mainland. We are always impressed to see these fisherman's huts rising above the water, facing winds and tides! Discover our best spots to see plaice on the destination. Who knows, you might be lucky enough to catch a fisherman teasing the fish while maneuvering the net?

1. The Concié in Saint-Palais-sur-Mer

When borrowing the Customs Trail from the Grande Côte, the conche du Concié is a privileged spot to contemplate the squares. On either side of the rocky cove, they face the immensity of the Atlantic. On the left, the panorama even makes it possible to distinguish the silhouette of the Terre-Nègre lighthouse.

2. The Caillaud cliff in Talmont-sur-Gironde

A large number of plaice dot the banks of the Gironde estuary. The Caillaud cliff is one of the most remarkable spots. There we find a alignment of more than ten squares connected to the cliff by long walkways. As a bonus, the view of the promontory of the listed village of Talmont-sur-Gironde is impregnable!

3. Pontaillac Beach in Royan

Trendy district of Royan, Pontaillac nonetheless remains a historic district. Evidenced by the row of squares that borders the beach on the right. At the beginning of the XNUMXth century, while some were taking advantage of the bathing, others indulged in the pleasures of fishing.

4. The Pilou cliff in Barzan

A little further south, near Barzan-plage, we discover a calm and preserved place. Here, the squares advance in the estuary of the Gironde while following the curves of the Pilou cliff. The landscapes are sublimated when the sun comes to illuminate the white limestone stone.

5. Le Breuil, between L'Eguille and Saujon

The Seudre estuary also has beautiful places to admire plaice. From Saujon, we follow the Paths of the Seudre that run along the estuary. At Le Breuil, squares are revealed in an atypical setting, in the middle of the marshes. An advice ? The beauty of the place is more striking at high tide.

6. Port Maran to Arces

Here is a spot known to locals and very pleasant to observe squares on the Gironde. Half-way between Meschers and Talmont, you can reach Port Maran on foot or by bike, following the marked coastal path Le Canal des 2 Mers®. At the end of the promenade, a scenic square landscape offers itself to us.
