Cycling with children

From the ferry landing stage at Le Verdon-sur-Mer, take the cycle path along the Atlantic coast towards Soulac-sur-Mer. It's only 8 km long, perfect for children! Look out for the Cordouan lighthouse off the coast, notice the remains of the Atlantic Wall and on arrival, consider a trip to the UNESCO listed Basilica.

Practical tips for a successful bike ride

It's important to prepare for cycling, so here are our tips for safe cycling.

The perfect kit: water bottle, hat, sun cream, mosquito repellent, bicycle repair kit and first aid kit for minor injuries and, above all, the camera! On site, it is important to use the marked paths and tracks, not to pick plants, which are often protected, and not to make fires. With all this you are ready to go!
