Latest reviews on Givrand's beaches

Plage des Dunes
10 Davin

We decided to check out Dunes 1 and 2 beaches. These beaches are absolutely stunning, with fine sand and occasional pebbles depending on the tide. The waves are beautiful and perfect for having a great time.

Saint Gilles Croix de Vie
10 Caterina

This beach is undoubtedly the most stunning sandy beach in the vicinity. During the summer, it tends to get quite busy due to the presence of restaurants and cafes. Unfortunately, there seems to be a slight littering issue which can be attributed to some inconsiderate and lazy visitors. Nonetheless, if you venture about 1km south, the beach becomes truly fantastic and ideal, especially for families with young kids. There are lifeguards on duty during the summer, and the waves are perfect for surfing. However, it's worth noting that accessing the beach from Rue de la Roche Bonneau can be challenging with a pram or wheelchair.

Plage des Granges
10 Daxton

Shoreline, sand dunes, ocean waves, expansive parking area, and a concrete estuary. When viewed from the German coast, this beach is undeniably stunning, but in France, there are more picturesque beach stretches to be found. Nevertheless, this beach transforms into a breathtaking sight when you venture a bit further south. Here, it exudes a wild, secluded charm with a backdrop of lush forest. Truly a delightful experience.

Boisvinet beach
6 Lena K

This beach is located just a few minutes from the town center and is situated by the entrance of the town harbor. While it's okay to swim during high tide, the water quality isn't great when the water level drops, and there's a lot of algae and mud. Additionally, sailing boats use this area, which limits the space for swimming. However, there are lifeguards and a natural water basin. The sand grains are quite large, making it difficult for kids to build sandcastles. There are bars and beach volleyball courts available, and it's a great spot to watch the fireworks on July 14th.

Paree Preneau beach
10 Léa FONTAINEAU

We stumbled upon a stunning beach with a mix of sand and pebbles and a breathtaking view. It's conveniently located near a spacious parking lot, making it accessible for those who may have trouble walking. Our family had a wonderful time during the late afternoon, enjoying the high tide and comfortable crowd levels. This is definitely a spot worth remembering.

Bussoleries beach

This beach is like a hidden gem, a little slice of paradise. Just a heads up, the sun gets pretty intense between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m., so be prepared for potential sunburn. Oh, and I definitely need to check out the beach restaurant that offers African delicacies next time I visit.
