Grand Piquey is the ideal place to stock up on lines, shackles or any other spare parts you might need if you’re planning a sailing or fishing trip.
There are also plenty of opportunities to buy or hire boats and jet skis.
At the ‘Comptoir de la Mer’, in one of the antique shops or in one of the decoration shops themed on the seaside,
you’ll find beautiful nautical objects and a selection of fisherman’s clothes from jumpers to reefer jackets,
always useful when you’re by the sea.
Whether you prefer freshwater or saltwater boating or fishing,
messing about in boats or bargain-hunting in antique shops,
Grand Piquey is the place for you!
Fancy a trial dive? The club will be happy to accompany you.
Get kitted-up and dive! This is a great spot to observe the sea horses that live in the bay in their hundreds.
You’ll soon know all their hiding-places.
The Hippo Diving School offers try dives, training courses and exploration dives, and has more than one surprise in store!
So after a dive, allow yourself to be tempted by a cake or pastry at Chez Patachou, a charming tea room open all year round, or try a local speciality – the ‘dune blanche’ (white sand dune) a delicious and wonderfully light cream choux pastry created by Pascal the village baker. You might well find yourself taking a painting home with you. From monochrome landscapes painted on unprimed linen canvasses to large-scale artists’ representations in vibrant colours, there’s a wide range of local artistic talent on display in Grand Piquey.
