Road Trip Postcard: Noirmoutier Island

An interesting drive to Ile-de-Noirmoutier off the Atlantic coast of France is a treat!  There are lots of activities from sunbathing at the numerous beaches, gorgeous summer houses, lunch at the picnic grounds, enjoying a sumptuous meal of moules frites during summer, cycling, strolling, checking out the windmills, and camping among many others.

It is accessible by road via a popular route Passage du Gois , a 4.5 kilometer paved road during low tide.  It is completely flooded twice a day during high tide.   A favorite spot visited by thousands of tourists per year for the unveiling of the causeway when the sea disappears.  Locals enjoy fishing by foot and shell fish digging.
