La Plaine sur Mer is well known for its excellent beaches and creeks for (shore) fishing. Some of the most famous beaches where you can fish for shrimps and shellfish are: Le Cormier, La Tara, La Prée, and Port Giraud.
Would you like to know more about (shore) fishing at our beaches? The Office de Tourisme of La Plaine sur Mer regularly organises a tour: « Sorties Nature Pêche à Pied ».
The nature and ecosystem of the Atlantic coast is unique but fragile. To protect and conserve the Atlantic coast, (shore) fishing is regulated to limit the amount and size of the shellfish and shrimps you can fish. The panels at the entrance of the beaches will inform you on the regulations and the quality of the seawater. If you require help with the translation of these panels from French to English, please do not hesitate to inquire at our reception desk!
