Several beaches to choose from in La Faute - and more things to do than at most beaches
Jun 2019 • Couples
The appearance of the five beaches at La Faute (Grande, Belugas, Chardons, Barriques, and Pointe d'Arcay) changes dramatically over the course of the day, based on the tides - the low tide gradually uncovers the bouchot mussel wooden poles that seem to emerge from the bay - but they do not really interfere with the other activities going on. Both Grande and Belugas have small snack shops that operate at least past sunset - Chardons and Barrique may also have snack bars but we did not check. Pointe d'Arcay is a beach where nudity is "tolerated" - for the most part they are discreet - and there is a very interesting walk that begins at Barrique Plage that goes all the way (6 km one way) to the Pointe d'Arcay itself - a walk in which the last 3 kms have to be done within a five hour period coinciding with low tide - and that walk passes by the Pointe d'Arcay beach. At low tide, in the area of Barrique and Pointe D'Arcay beaches and south, we saw a number of people horseback riding and "sand sailing." There are bathrooms close to the parking lots - some of which are close to the dunes which lead out to the beaches but others, such as the one close to the Barrique plage - Les Amourettes - is located about a block away from the dunes. There are bicycle paths identified (and on asphalt) along the dunes (but not directly onto the beach) which also are used by joggers. Very good pamphlets available at the local tourist offices - including descriptions of walks to take in La Faute and in L'Aiguillon sur Mer.

Great beach
Jun 2019 • Family
The beach at La Faute is really lovely. It’s very sandy and very clean. Those of us brave enough to go in the water, which is still a bit chilly, discovered that it stays shallow really quite a long way out. The only minor downside is that it is quite a walk through the dunes and we should have thought to bring a pushchair (there is a good path).

Great beach but...
Aug 2017 • Family
...parking is an absolute bugger. We went to the 'wrong' end (the the right as you fave the sea) and oarked in a side street next to the dunes.

Thats the pain part, the good thing is thst the beach is great. Sandy, no rubbish, sea is fine for the kids gradient and shallowness wise. Take drinks etc - there are no facilities bar the paddle board and kayak hire places (incl no toilets) where we were (right off the end of the busy stretch). If youre near the main part there may be facilities.

Good beach beyond the dunes.

The sea is just visible in places and the beach is reached by a long path through the dunes, not conducive when carrying beach chairs etc. But once there the beach is very nice with fine sand. Dogs are not allowed during the main season.

Had a lovely day with the family on this beach. Easy enough to park, a wooded area where you can have lunch, lovely sandy beach and loads of crashing waves.
