This makes Oléron a lovely place to walk and enjoy nature, whether it be a mushroom picking jaunt in the autumn, or simply a summer stroll through the pine forests and along the beautiful beaches. Since oyster farming is traditionally the islands largest economy, there are various tourist attractions centred around this, like trips out on to the east coast marshes at low tide and, of course oyster detestation restaurants. The famous oyster marshes are recognisable throughout the island and are surrounded by colourful huts, working and artisan, which bring artists and seafood lovers from all over the place. Keeping in this style you will find that the whole island is full of amazing seafood restaurants and bars to help you while away the activities of your day.

Next to the port is the historic Citadel, an original Vauban fortress dating back to the 17th century, but now more commonly used to host jazz festivals, art exhibitions or fireworks displays. There is also a nice beach in the town with a sea water swimming pool during the summer to enable swimming at low tide and safe swimming for the little ones with a great beach bar which has live music at least three times a week in season.
