Capital of the Charente-Maritime, La Rochelle is well-known for the beauty of its architecture and its natural environment being perfectly situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Located between Bordeaux and Nantes, La Rochelle is a very popular destination for tourists and sailors, having several islands making peer-to-peer boat rentals very attractive. Treat yourself to a trip including a boat rental in the Pertuis d'Antioche, home to the famous Fort Boyard.
When sailing in La Rochelle, make sure to stop at the Port de plaisance des Minimes, which is considered one of the largest marinas in France. By sailing, you will be assured to have an unobstructed view of the coast or of the Saint Nicolas tower. The four ports that the region houses will delight boating enthusiasts and will encourage you to practice sailing, windsurfing, or just take a nice dip in the charming waters.
The region is home to several islands, whose landscapes are stunning and majestic. Among these four islands, facing La Rochelle is the island of Ré, a land rich in contrast between pine forests and sandy beaches. You can also rent a sailboat and explore the Île d'Oléron, the Île-d'Aix that is in the shape of a crescent or the Île Madame, all three popular for sailors to relax, practice water sport activities or fish.
If you prefer to travel with a professional, skippers are available to accompany you on a boat trip around La Rochelle during the day. In the evening, you can enjoy the sunset with an affordable boat rental and spend a romantic night at the pier.
