There are lots of lovely sandy beaches to choose from ..........the sheltered coves of Meschers, the long sandy beaches of St Georges de Didonne and Royan, the attractive family seaside resorts around St Palais sur Mer and Vaux sur Mer and the wild beaches on the other side with their huge Atlantic rollers. All from 20 mins to 50 mins. away from Civrac. Some beaches have children's clubs in the main holiday season with lots to keep the kids amused.
