The Customs Officers' Path

Do not expect to meet some stout customs’ officer, scanning the horizon and watching out for smugglers. The former customs officers’ path which runs all along France’s coasts, is now a public footpath, open to everybody. The sections of Saint-Nazaire offer magnificent views.

This “balcony above the sea” is a pure delight, with its scents of resin and gorse, huge pine trees and evergreen oaks adding a very Mediterranean touch to the scenery. In sunshine, the sea sparkles below, promising all kinds of pleasures; on inclement days, you have a panoramic view over the storm-tossed ocean.

How about a two-hour walk along the coast?
