Talmont Saint-Hilaire has sixteen kilometres of exceptional coastline, alternating between cliffs, fine sandy beaches and pebbled beaches, leading to an emerald estuary which is lost in a maze of channels and marshes. Bordered by a forest, the Veillon wood, one of the most beautiful holm oak forests on the Atlantic coast, the town has a generous and preserved nature. The Payré estuary is classified as a major natural site and was designated the first remarkable site in the Vendée in 2007. Classified as a Natura 2000 protection zone, it is unique in terms of biodiversity and botany with a large number of rare and protected plant species. In 2014, the Veillon beach was awarded the Blue Flag label, rewarding the quality of the beach’s bathing water.
