La Rochelle has a huge selection of seafood resturants and is also home to Fort Bauyard. It has a great harbour front and sandy beaches. La Rochelle is a dynamic, welcoming and lively city which will captivate you for some hours or days, first of all with its maritime character. Anchored to the Atlantic coast, near the Islands of Ré and Oléron, La Rochelle is best discovered and enjoyed through its various ports: the Old Port in the city centre, the marina at Les Minimes, the commercial port of La Pallice, and the fishing port of Chef de Baie. www.ville-larochelle.fr/en/discover-the-city/tourism.html
