Have fun and relax in Royan


Royan offers many sports, leisure and discovery activities.

Lovers of serenity and tranquility will be seduced by the remarkable 18-hole golf course of Royan which marries the natural dunes amidst the pines of the forest of Coubre.

While a little further on, the Maine-Gaudin equestrian center proposes walks in the forest to beginners as well as confirmed riders. Here the ride opens wide open spaces.

Racket fans will take the direction of the Garden Tennis which has 14 clay courts overlooking the sea, which have welcomed the biggest, like the champion of France tennis handisport Florence Gravelier. In the heart of the park district, the tennis courts of the Orangerie offer courts for rent during the summer.

Small and large adventurers will prefer the course in the trees of the Coolongalook Adventure Park while the kart fans will find themselves on the certified track of 600 meters of Royan Karting.

As for those who want to take the height, they can fly over forests, dunes and conches in glider and paragliding, play motor dragonflies in microlight, learn to parachuting, offer a helicopter baptism or tutoy the clouds with Alain during a hot-air balloon ride, with friends or family, and marvel at the beauties of the Gironde and Charentais-maritime coastlines.

From the pontoons of Royan, aboard the many boats, day passengers can get to know better the shorelines, beaches and cliffs that opens on the ocean waves...

During the summer, the coastal beaches are a sought-after center.
After the Dream of Icarus, which takes place at the end of May-beginning of June, the summer is colorful. Its palette declines the beautiful red and beautiful green fireworks of July 14th and August 15th. Particularly appreciated, pyrosymphonic show of 15th August brings together 200 000 people on the beach of Royan. We also see contests of ephemeral sculptures, concerts ... but also festivals where we meet at dusk, feet in the sand, to live together a musical dream during the evenings of the Violin on the Sand.

The season is punctuated by music and exhibitions and the vaults of the churches of the Pays Royannais echo the concerts of Jeudis Musicaux.

The party continues at the Lucien Barrière casino in Pontaillac. Everything is there to satisfy the amateurs of games: slot machines but also blackjack, Stud Poker, Texas Hold'em Poker, English roulette ... before going to have a drink and dinner with friends, early morning.

After this active day, there is no doubt that a day of relaxation and well-being at the thalassotherapy institute Thalazur will be welcome.
