Housing nearly 300 animals, 40 of them threatened species, the Zoo des Sables is a small zoo that remains a nest of biodiversity. The zoo’s goal is to create eco-citizens by introducing people to animals in an intimate and carefully maintained environment. However, one of the most attractive aspects of the place is its location near the sea. Admire and learn about exotic animals and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze at the same time.

  • Lovely little zoo. Very well looked after animals. Beautiful bird space with the possibility to feed them. A great place to visit when it is hot an sunny as most parts of the park are with big trees. Suitable for prams. Food stand with outdoor seating area and souvenir shop available.
  • Great little zoo involved in many international conservations programs. The path are surrounded with exuberant vegetation making you feel like you're in the middle of nature. Around 50 species available in great natural looking enclosures. Some shows available at times during the day. Reasonable in price, 16.50€ for an adult. The bar- restaurant is also reasonable in price.
