BAIE DE L’AIGUILLON NATIONAL NATURE RESERVE

1

A remarkable natural site

Description

The Aiguillon bay is the result of the filling of the Gulf des Pictons. It extends between the departments of Vendée and Charente-Maritime.

The salt meadows or Mizottes, covered by the sea by a high tidal coefficient, allow you to discover a vegetation mainly composed of halophilic species such as the salicorne. And it is also a wintering and stopping place of great importance for migratory waterbirds. You will be able to observe asylag geese, Belonadoras, elegant avocets, pintail ducks, black-tailed barges, Red Knot, etc.

During the year, several outings "La baie au fil des saisons" are offered free of charge accompanied by a guard from the reserve. Info/Booking at the Tourist Office Sud Vendée Littoral"
