At the Océarium in Le Croisic, the visitor moves among the winged stingrays, sharks and groupers in a completely transparent tunnel. You can watch the penguins feeding, or perhaps overcome any trauma inflicted by Jaws, with a visit to the Australian shark pavilion.
In a scene inspired by of the fabulous inventions of Jules Verne, you can meet the turtles.
The lagoon space in turn, invites you to wonder at the colours of the magnificent tropical fish.
The nursery looks after young specimens, or hatching eggs. At the Cyclades, prepare for a dive to the bottom of the Mediterranean.
In the touch pool, children can discover a reconstruction of the wild coast of Le Croisic and can shake pincers with a crab! Visitors will leave the Océarium speechless at all the fascinating discoveries!
A primary commercial hub for the town, the port of Saint-Nazaire was constructed in the 19th century in order to relieve some of the maritime activity at the port of Nantes.
Today, the site of the Nantes-Saint-Nazaire Autonomous Port is one of the major ports of France. A public establishment, the port covers over 20,000 hectares, which sees over 3,000 boats and ships passing through each year. The modern history of the port of Saint-Nazaire tells the story of France's industrialisation during the 19th century
Since two new areas were incorporated to its submarine base in 2000, the innovative museum has been able to provide transatlantic cruises on luxury liners inspired by luxury ships built in the Saint-Nazaire shipyard, such as the Ile de France, the Normandy or the France .
As soon as visitors arrive on board, they receive keys to a cabin as well as the liner route. Everybody is free to organise their own itinerary selecting from the engine room, the bridge, the music rooms, the smoking room and obviously the passageways and decks leading to the cinema.
Are you ready to experience an amazing cruise?
Often cited as one of the most beautiful bays in the world, the Côte d'Amour ("Coast of Love") extends around the Guérand peninsula from Saint Nazaire to Mesquer.
WIth beaches, cliffs and breathtaking landscapes, this bay is astonishingly pretty. Every year thousands of visitors flock to the seaside resorts dotted along the coast.
This bay area was previously known as La Grande Côte, ("the great coast") before being renamed with a competition in 1911. The area is ideal for walks, and is filles with marvels, along the coast and inland, too.
Built by the Germans during the Second World War, the Saint-Nazaire Submarine Base is a rare testimony to naval architecture.
Built in concrete, the base covered over four hectares in total. Although it suffered considerable damage under allied bombing, the base still has a few historically significant remains.
Renovation work was carried out and the base is now home to tourist centres such as the International Ocean Liner Centre, the submarine L'Espadon and an ecomuseum.
From the terrace you can admire an exceptional view over the town.
