Island hopping to Fort Boyard

Island hopping

The larger islands of Charente-Maritime – Île d’Oléron and Île de Ré – offer lots of recreational activities like sailing, stand-up paddle-boarding and cycling.

For those looking for some classic R&R, you’ll find ample opportunities for bronzing on the beach.

Also consider a boat ride to Fort Boyard, the off-shore fortress built in the 19th century that hosts a popular French TV game show.
