Spring break time has come! We give you ideas for activities and outings to make the most of your stay around Royan.
The great outdoors at all costs
During spring break, the sun is pointing the tip of its nose. Obviously, after a warm winter, we are in a hurry to get out, move, enjoy the beautiful clearings and nature. Moreover, our destination is full of big spaces preserved to indulge in walks and hikes on foot or by bike. By the sea, in the heart of the forest, between fields and hills, choose your setting and follow the marked paths. The colors and atmospheres are superb in this season!
Alone or with others, try a slightly more sporty outdoor activity: orienteering ! Equipped with a map and a compass, you follow a route linking different beacons which form an imposed route. In the middle of nature, we therefore combine the pleasure of the walk and reflection to decipher the map and find the fastest path. Several levels of difficulty are offered and if you want to add to the challenge, you start the timer!
The Easter holidays mark the start of the season on the Destination Royan Atlantic. On this occasion, we benefit in particular from the first entertainment for children : egg hunts, workshops, shows... As a family, we take part in nature outings educational to learn a little more about our environment.
You can also discover the territory in a playful way with the Terra Aventura route. Thus, we go in search of clues in emblematic places of the territory. We must observe the details that surround us to solve puzzles. In short, Tèrra Aventura is a treasure hunt that combines nature and culture walks while creating a bond between young and old!
In search of new sensations
Spring break is also an opportunity to practice activities that we would not do around home. The large stretches of sand are also real playgrounds for trying out yachting or to a Horse ride. We are in small groups, far from the crowds of the big days... We breathe deeply, we pick up speed, it's invigorating and rejuvenating!
A downpour, so what?
Even if the sun is not there, we do not get discouraged! We look at the ideas for activities and outings to do “when it rains”. Solo or as a duo, it's the perfect time to treat yourself to a break. We choose one of our wellness areas, spas and thalassotherapy to relax. Otherwise, nothing like a cocooning afternoon with a good book or a family board game for a moment of sharing!
This period of relaxation is conducive to immersion in the local gastronomy. According to the desire of the moment, we treat ourselves with a large seafood platter and Marennes-Oléron oysters. You can also taste culinary specialties made from local products or order a meal on the go!
The holidays are always too short and as soon as you return, the desire to go back is felt.
Thus, to prolong the pleasure, it is possible to bring back a little souvenir Destination Royan Atlantique at home. To do this, just go to one of the shops at the tourist office, where you can find many gift ideas, such as artisanal soaps, producer salt, local Charentais wines , vintage postcards, books and posters. It will be hard to resist the temptation!
