La Rochelle

White City

Driving on the narrow streets can be difficult in La Rochelle so walking or biking will give you the best view of the pale stone buildings that give the Vieux Port, or old port, a distinctly Mediterranean quality.
Take a break from the city and head to Vieux Port and Plage de la Pointe Espagnole. You'll get in some beach time at Plage du Vieux Phare and Plage de Chaucre. Change things up with these side-trips from La Rochelle: Plage de la Grande Conche (in Royan), Saint-Palais-sur-Mer (La Grande Cote & Cote Sauvage de la Presqu'ile d'Arvert) and Plage de la Phibie (in Le Chateau d'Oleron). There's much more to do: meet the residents at Aquarium La Rochelle, kick back and relax at Plage de Chatelaillon, get outside with La Rochelle Croisiere Haka, and stroll through Plage de la Coubre.

To see ratings, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the La Rochelle trip builder website.
