Port des Salines

Interesting
Brightly coloured oyster-farm huts house exhibitions on the island's traditional activities: the history of salt in Saintonge, the écluses à poisson (fish retention locks) and oyster farming. A walkway provides information on the salt marshes and salt production, and salt products are for sale in the shop. Finally, boat trips allow visitors to explore the flora and fauna of the marshes.
