Description: A traditional water theme park with various different flumes as well as several swimming pools, rapids and the like.

Location: Heading from St Gilles Croix-de-View towards St Jean-de-Monts you’ll find Atlantic Toboggan on the right hand side, just past the turning for Merlin Plage.

General Info: Visit their website or call on 02 51 58 05 37.

Our recommendations: The queues are shortest in the morning and over the lunchtime period.  Take a picnic along so you can make a whole day out here (but save it till after 2PM so you make the most of the lunchtime lull!) to get best value for money.  Remember that your children shouldn’t be swimming immediately after a meal though.

For the children: This is a paradise for children.  We would definitely recommend it for older kids that are strong swimmers and who can be left to their own devices.  Younger children will enjoy it as well as there are some features just for infants, but you will need to be with them all the time.
