The area is most famous for Cognac, the Pinot grape and wine, and on nearly every country road you will have the opportunity to taste and buy if you wish.
A little further along you will find St George de Didonne and Royan, again offering superb beaches and a multitude of shops, restaurants and places of interest. Slightly further along the coast is where some very good surfing beaches can be found, or from Royan you can take the ferry across the Gironde to the wilder side of the Atlantic coast, where the surf is big! Lacanau and Carcans are excellent for experienced surfers.
