An anchorage to try when there is no swell. Swimming and fishing. Located I hour from Les Sables d'Olonne and 15 minutes from Bourgenay. NOTE The ground is essentially rock and seaweed. An excellent restaurant, the Cayola, overlooks the bay. Highly recommended! Attention, use only when there is a calm sea with no swell. Lots of rocks!
