Direct access To the beach

You want to enjoy your holiday relaxing on the beach, make sand castles, enjoy the sun, the ocean waves and the good salty air? Easy! Get out of your tent, mobile-home, lodge or cabin, take 3 steps, push the wooden door and bingo, there you are! The Camping Les Baleines has a direct access to the ocean!

La plage de la Conche (The Conche beach) spreads on kilometres of soft sand, just for you, less than 300 m from the campsite. Protected by the Canot de sauvetage (Lifeboat), made in 1969, come and admire the ocean’s relentless dance. Sometimes smooth and flat like as a lake, sometimes boisterous and unleashed, in the early morning dawn or lit by the moon and the stars, the ocean delivers a beautiful and always renewed show.

Relax and have fun At the Camping Les Baleines


To be on holiday, is to take time to savour life, to be zen. Take a book (lent by the campsite) or some organic orange juice (at the grocery store) and just chill in one of our hammocks on the wooden terrace or on one of the benches in several places of the campsite.
Enjoy the view, the flowers, the people passing by. Observe bird mothers feeding their fledglings in the nesting boxes. Let yourself be lulled by the ocean’s purring.

Then, when you feel like it, stretch and take a few steps relaxing gardens with aromatic plants. Shh, tomatoes are growing!
