The Coubre lighthouse offers stunning views over the estuary; from Gironde, the Arvert peninsula and the Oléron island.
The La Coubre Lighthouse; a century of history:
This lighthouse commissioned in 1905, of 64 meters high, is located in the Charente-Maritime at the forefront of La Coubre. It secures the entrance to the Gironde estuary. It is the highest lighthouse (300 steps to get to the top) of the Charente coast and it is open for visits.
Adjacent to the forest of La Coubre, the lighthouse is also since 2005 an ecomuseum that allows visitors to get acquainted with the history of lighthouses in the Gironde estuary. Moreover, it is a popular holiday place and in order to fully enjoy, it is best to book a campsite near the La Coubre lighthouse.
