Stroll on the south coast of the peninsula and admire the sunset, during winter, it lies just behind Ile Madame and in summer, the sun sets on Ile d’Aix and on the famous Fort Boyard. We will share a little secret with you : the best spot to watch the sunset is on the « Grande Plage », with the Fort Vauban towering above the beach.
And when the beautiful days, full of sun are here, go to the Pointe de la Fumée to try your hand at foot fishing, a well adored activity in Charente-Maritime or discover the work of oyster farmers when they collect their shellfish...
The Fouras peninsula, a friendly place to live
Every day, without an exception the market takes place at the heart of the pedestrian street. Be adventurous, have a taste at all of our fresh seasonal products, buy some fish and shellfish caught in the early hours of the day and meet with friends around a coffee, rue de la halle.
In spring, concerts and entertainment are also on the street, on the beaches, on the sea front and if you want to go out, go to the Casino open all year round !
That’s life on the peninsula of Fouras-les-Bains, people enjoy daily the rays of sun and the bustle of the street, with the relaxing sound of the waves.
