Nicknamed “Mimosa Island” thanks to its exceptional microclimate, Noirmoutier, authentic & unspoilt island, is a seaside paradise for nature lovers.
The attractiveness of Noirmoutier is due to its unusual access: “The Passage du Gois”, a periodically flooded causeway (4.5km). It’s one of the island's must-see curiosities. During low tide you can travel the causeway to reach Beauvoir-sur-Mer and fish for clams, oysters and cockles. There is also a modern toll-free bridge linking the mainland to Noirmoutier.
Come & enjoy its 80 km of cycling- and 64km of hiking paths connecting the north to the south, throughout picturesque villages, wild coastlines, sandy beaches and beautiful landscapes.
Noirmoutier offers quality products with its oysters and other shellfish, potatoes such as the famous "Bonnotte", his natural salt & sea asparagus. Salt marshes cover 1/3 of the island. You can visit the marshes all summer long and at the beginning of autumn. The many salt huts along the roads also attract their fair share of visitors.. The salt harvest is an artisan trade which follows traditional methods.
There is also a very rich offer of recreational and sporting facilities: Sailing schools, yachting, diving, waterpark, boat trips …
Horseback riding, bike rides, aquarium, museums, salt marshes, markets, bars oyster, fishing ... so many "nature" and authentic activities to share with your partner or family.
