Tourism on Ile de Ré
The Phare des Baleines stands at the bottom of Ile de Ré and towers over the sea and the village of Saint Clément des Baleines. You’ll fall in love with the simplicity, peace and quiet of this little village along with its sandy beach that stretches over 5km and cycle paths taking you on an adventure around Ile de Ré.
Old village of lobster fishermen, in the West St Clément is lined with the wild coast, in the East with the salt marshes and in the North with the great beach of the "Conche des Baleines". You will also appreciate to escape thanks to the cycle paths through the vines, the fields of new potatoes, the salt marshes and to succumb to the temptation of some gastronomic jaunts.
The narrowest way of the island, in the very heart of the salt marshes, Ars en Ré appears in the highly selective list of the "most beautiful villages in France", with its church erected in 12th and 13th centuries overhung with its black and white steeple; you will appreciate to stroll in the bloom alleys, saunter along the port, watch the boats evolution, listen to the histories from the Ile de Ré...
