Welcome to the ultimate holiday island
Camping with a sandy beach just around the corner; that really is being on holiday! Make your way to the French island Île de Ré for a holiday full of sun, sea and sand. Also for a holiday where you can enjoy an extensive programme of entertainment for the whole family, evening entertainment and all types of sports fields. You can experience it all at Camping Sandaya Les Amis de la Plage.
Fun in the water for everyone
You cannot swim on the campsite itself, but you don’t need to, because you can walk quickly to beach which stretches for many kilometres, and to the sea where you can swim, fish or windsurf for hours. If you’re not a fan of sea water, take a look at the swimming pool right next to the campsite. The beach near the campsite is covered in fine sand which is wonderfully soft to lie on. Spread out your towel and sunbathe! Be careful where you lie down, quite often there is a game of beach volleyball in progress.
Make holiday friends
Children are treated like royalty at Camping Sandaya Les Amis de la Plage. Three different clubs (for toddlers, slightly older children and teenagers) mean there is entertainment for almost everyone. Take a look at how the children make friends while building things, playing sports and dancing. If it’s sports for all ages you are looking for, play a round of jeu de boules or table tennis, and decide once and for all who is the best in the family! The campsite has a small shop with fresh bread and certain provisions. For the rest of your shopping you can walk to the village of Le Bois-Plage-en-Ré, and you can be in the centre within fifteen minutes. There are lovely small shops and restaurants here which you can take a look at.
Cycle to picturesque villages
Ile de Ré is a great island for cycling. Give the car a rest and jump on your bike for a lovely trip. There are two unusual places on the island; La Flotte (twenty minutes cycling) and Ars-en-Ré (three quatres of an hour by bike). They are justifiably both on the ‘Loveliest Villages in France’ list. La Flotte is a village in the east of the island and has a lovely fishing and yacht harbour. There is also a pier dating from 1840. Explore the flower displays in the centre and stroll through the daily market to find something tasty.
Ars-en-Ré is on the west coast of the island and also has a lovely harbour. The church and clock tower are also worth visiting. Ars-en-Ré is renowned for its many oyster farms, and you can see how this delicacy is cultivated. You might even decide to try a really fresh portion in the evening. If you prefer a hamburger and fries, you can order that in one of the restaurants!
