Visite à la journée

Day excursion to the island

SET OFF ON A DAY OF DISCOVERIES!

ONE DAY, TWO ITINERARIES TO CHOOSE FROM

It’s possible to visit Noirmoutier Island in a day, thanks to the two routes we have prepared for you that will take you past the must-see sites on the island.

 

To prepare for your day out and make the most of your time, be sure to bring:

 

the tide tables

the tourist map of the island

the restaurant  guide
 

REMINDER :

 

Are you coming by car? You can reach Noirmoutier Island via:

  • the Gois Passage, a 4.3 km long, sometimes flooded road that can only be taken at low tide;
  • the bridge to the island, free and open 24/7.

Before you get to the island, check the tide tables to figure out which of these two options you can take.
