The Verdon sur Mer

The Verdon-sur-Mer, located at the extreme Pointe du Médoc, 100 km from Bordeaux, is a village with a marked maritime vocation! It has three supervised beaches, three lighthouses (the Lighthouse Saint Nicolas, the lighthouse of Grave, and the oldest and famous lighthouse of France: the lighthouse of Cordouan on its rock island) as well as four ports: the Port Bloc, the port of trade, the Old Port aux oysters and the new marina with 800 rings Port Médoc.

The discovery of the Verdon begins most often with that of Pointe de Grave which offers a view of the mouth of the largest estuary in Europe. Inescapable and unique place, the ocean and waters of the Gironde meet there and mingle in an immense space facing the Charente coast.

The attentive visitor quickly discovers that the Verdon is also home to other treasures: vast beaches on the Atlantic coast and on the Gironde estuary, forests and marshes, bike paths and hiking trails are also places of rest, loitering , or intrepid adventures.

 “My land comes from the sea” (Verdonnaise motto).

The commune of Verdon-sur-mer has been classified since 2018 “Blue Flag”. This label is awarded to coastal municipalities that meet the following three criteria : environmental education, waste management and water management.

The quality of beaches in labeled municipalities is regularly analyzed; the results of these analyzes are also posted on the beaches. Finally, it is the general environment that is studied, such as the accessibility of beaches for people with reduced mobility.
