Attractions of the west coast of France

Due to its location on the Atlantic Ocean, the west coast of France is a paradise for surfers – especially the towns located in the south-west are valued for their high waves: Hossegor, Les Cavaliers and Les Estagnots. Parallel to the beaches is an extensive network of cycling and hiking trails. There are also many historic towns and villages worth visiting, such as Brest, La Rochelle, Bordeaux and Bayonne. The French Atlantic Coast is also a great place for enotourism – the grape varieties grown in the western part of France are considered to be one of the best in the world!
