Nice place for kayaking and paddle boarding. Charges are based on time. We were there when the tide was full in and this can make a big difference. Very relaxing paddling along the channels. Easy place to spend a couple of enjoyable hours. There are...More

This is a nice visit; there are boat visits with a guide, different self guided rentals and a discovery path for kids with some games and enigmas. But not amazing. Ok if you are staying in the area, but not worth driving from far away

We loved the salt lakes. Well worth a trip up them in a canoe. We had a really good time. We went as a family and laughed our way along the lakes. Safety vest is provided. Good value. Great fun and lots of fun

We biked from Brem-sur-Mer to Sables-d'Olonne, passing through Les Salines on a well-marked bike path. A very good idea to have the bike route pass this way.
