What to see in Batz-sur-Mer
On your way to Batz-sur-Mer, don’t miss the many salt marshes on either side of the road… By bike, on foot or in a horse-drawn carriage, discover the richness of this unique salt culture. At dusk, immortalise the moment when the sun’s shadow disappears in the carnations or on the horizon of Valentin beach.
Learn about the local culture by immersing yourself in the life of a salt worker in the typical village of Kervalet or in the museum of the Grand Blockhaus, a former military shelter during the Second World War.
