Hikers and nature lovers will be delighted!

The hiking and cycling circuits occupy the space in the town of La Faute-sur-Mer. The two main walking routes are "Le Littoral Fautais" and "The Pointe d'Arçay". The first will take you for 13 kilometers, to discover the sandy peninsula in constant morphological evolution and bordered on one side by the river Lay and on the other, by the ocean for more than 10 km. A unique opportunity to observe the local flora and fauna. The tip of Arçay is a site of 1.035 hectares, on land and at sea, protected since 1951. Several environments rub shoulders there and are home to preserved biodiversity. The Pointe d'Arçay and the Aiguillon bay nature reserve form a set of habitats of international importance for migratory birds. These two sites are linked to many other natural coastal sites of great ecological interest on the scale of the Poitevin marsh and the Charentais sluices. 

For cycling enthusiasts, the “La Presqu'île Loop” cycle loop is family-friendly and accessible even with little ones. This cycle path allows you to discover the peninsula of Faute-sur-Mer: Le Lay, the Casse de la belle Henriette, the Pointe d'Arçay as well as the very beautiful sandy beaches. You will evolve along the coast to reach and discover the Casse de la Belle Henriette. You will thus observe a rich fauna and flora typical of this lagoon. You will then pass on the side of the Lay, which you will follow for nearly 7 km. Between forest and ocean, you will be captivated by the richness of biodiversity. Take the time to stop at the Rade d'Amour, former oyster farm concession valued by the Conservatoire du Littoral and the Municipality. It was returned to walkers "in love" and to nature, so that they can fully benefit from this patchwork of saltwater environments populated by birds such as waders, raptors, or even laridae.
