Les Salines give you an hour-long boat trip along the river just to the north of les Sables d'Olonne, with a very interesting commentary in French, though English visitors who didn't concentrate in their French lessons in school were given a written English translation. It...More

This is a nice visit; there are boat visits with a guide, different self guided rentals and a discovery path for kids with some games and enigmas. But not amazing. Ok if you are staying in the area, but not worth driving from far away

We loved the salt lakes. Well worth a trip up them in a canoe. We had a really good time. We went as a family and laughed our way along the lakes. Safety vest is provided. Good value. Great fun and lots of fun

We had fun canoeing but be warned you will get wet and the weeds are quite thick along the banks. At €12 euros for a two man canoe for an hour it was very reasonably priced

We biked from Brem-sur-Mer to Sables-d'Olonne, passing through Les Salines on a well-marked bike path. A very good idea to have the bike route pass this way.

Good canoeing that was relatively easy. We took 4 canoes and let our 10 year old and 12 year old canoe by themselves. They managed it relatively easily. Pretty out in the salt marshes.
