Saint-Denis d'Oleron is the northernmost town of the island. As a result, the town has managed to retain an environment in which nature, authenticity and recreation are in perfect harmony.
Among the local activities are: swimming for families on Boirie beach (which is lined with multicolored cabins), sports on the beach, bike trails along the coastline, walks on the marina (with assured access to local gastronomy), sea fishing and boat trips (daily).
The majestic Chassiron lighthouse is near the town, overlooking the Passage of Antioch, with unforgettable views from its summit at 46 meters.
