A thousand different things to explore by bike!
Discover La Tranche sur Mer, a resort with the "Territoire Vélo" label, and the South Vendée by cycling along the many cycle paths in the region.
Ranked first in the 2022 "towns and villages" ranking of cycling cities, La Tranche sur Mer can be discovered by bicycle! With more than 40 kilometres of tracks throughout the town, more than a simple activity, your bike will be the daily ally of your stay.
A new concept: the Vélorue
La Tranche sur Mer encourages soft mobility during your stay. In addition to its numerous cycle paths, the town is experimenting with a new concept, the Vélorue, a street transformed into a cycle path where cars do not have priority. You can therefore cycle in complete peace on part of the Rue du Phare and the Rue de la Vigie, as well as on a section of the Rue de la Mer towards the Plage de la Terrière.
Experience your holiday 100% by bike
In the early morning, get on your bike and enjoy the freshness and calm of the streets in the city centre. Make a first stop at the market, Place de la Liberté and under the Halles. Fresh fish, seasonal fruit and vegetables, delicatessen... You will find everything you need for your lunch! Then take a break at one of the many cafés in the town centre, and head back out to greet the ocean at the end of Avenue de la Plage.
Ready to go again? Head for the La Terrière district. Here you will discover the charm of an authentic district with its typical low houses and its small chapel. Want to cool off? Just a few more pedal strokes and you're off for a swim at La Terrière beach, one of the most beautiful in the Vendée. On the way back, make a diversion to admire the lighthouse at the Pointe du Groin du Cou.
Now pedal towards La Grière! Take the track near the Maupas water level and discover the seaside houses in the heart of a pine forest. Continue on your way and stroll through the shops and businesses in the area. A little more effort, and you will reach the Belle Henriette Nature Reserve and its footbridge! An exceptional site between the lagoon and the ocean!
