Saint-Georges-de-Didonne is a renowned resort located south of Royan on the Gironde estuary. Its large conch faces the tip of Grave. Between the Vallières lighthouse and the Pointe de Suzac, it offers a vast expanse of fine sand that is very popular with families. On either side of the conch, at the tip of Vallières in the north and the tip of Suzac in the south, the territory of Saint-Georges-de-Didonne also conceals pretty coves that are more wild and very intimate. The coastal path allows you to discover these different landscapes in turn. A large part of the municipality is covered by a wooded area of holm oaks and maritime pines. This forest is covered by an important network of walkways. In the city centre, Saint-Georges church is the starting point for several lively and commercial pedestrian alleys.
