Agon-Coutainville, Happiness at the seaside !
Since more people have started swimming in the sea, Agon-Coutainville has not stopped developing around the seaside, which is reflected by the both traditional and modern villas dotted along the beaches. You start off going with your parents and then in time you take your own kids and that is how generation after generation, people still go to this lovely resort. Whether it is for a long weekend with friends, or having a real break away with the family, come and visit Coutainville for a breath of fresh air !
Now the town offers a nice cultural programme and activities for kids and adults alike.
Agon-Coutainville is one of the best seaside resorts, offering a wide range of activities for you to do by yourself, with your partner, as a family or with your friends… Whether you like a relaxing or an active holiday, you will fall in love with its big sandy beaches.
As active and lively as it is wild and natural, the resort is made up of the village of Agon (little streets, stone walls and lovely old villas) and areas of Coutainville and Passous where the little businesses and beaches are, not to mention the Pointe d’Agon, a natural site that extends over several hectares of dunes and salt marshes.
We love it for its beautiful beaches and its events: Agon-Coutainville
Forget the car, hop on your bike. It’s the perfect way to get around the resort and that way you can make the most of the peace and quiet of the leisure facilities available. If you like relaxing and lazing around, the big beaches are patrolled, meaning you can have perfect relaxing moments, make amazing sandcastles and go in the sea, and it is completely safe! As for sports, the town has two tennis clubs, an equestrian centre and a golf course.
If you are looking for thrills, the water sports club offers activities catered for all tastes. You can go land sailing, paddleboarding, sailing or kayaking and the Mauna Kéa surf club team will teach you how to skimboard on the beach all summer! And if you would rather stay on terra firma, there is a 400m2 skatepark on the grass for all the skaters out there.
To explore another side of the resort, head off along one of the walking trails where you will discover the beautiful unspoilt landscapes, from land to sea. Find our ideas for walks/little hikes in a leaflet that is available for free at the front desk of the tourist information centre and in the hikes section of our website.
Finally, in summer, there are markets and big events all throughout July and August : a series of concerts, “Coutainville la Plage”, a great weekend dedicated to the sea and its attractions, Hissez les voix, the biggest singing competition in the West and Enduro pédestre des sables, involving running races in the dunes and on the beach.
