This is the place for surfing, kite boarding etc or just playing in the sand.

The Tourist Office in the village will help you organise boat trips or any other excursions.
La Courade is also ideally placed for exploring the rest of the island, being mid way up the Atlantic coast , at the narrowest point . It is only a few kms to La Flotte on the other coast, and if you don't want to use the car or cycle, there is a regular bus service.
