Fishing on foot

During your stay at the Hotel ** Les Atlantes on the Côte Fleurie, share a simple and authentic happiness: fishing on foot!


The best fishing is done at high tides, when the sea retreats for hundreds of meters and discovers large flat and rocky areas, a real paradise for the fisherman on foot.

Take out your nets, a small hook, a rake and put on your boots to go fishing in the water holes or under the rocks ... shrimps, periwinkles, clams, crabs, mussels, cockles will fill your baskets.

Some practical tips to remember:

*Respect maximum catch sizes

*Return the stones back to their original position

*Know the time of the rising tide not to be surprised

*Only pick up what you are sure to consume
