La Baule-Escoublac

La Baule-Escoublac, commonly referred to as La Baule, is a commune in the Loire-Atlantique departement of France. It boasts the longest sand beach of Europe, which is 12 kilometers in length. In 1779, a violent storm buried the village under sand. La Baule-Escoublac was rebuilt further inland. At that time, the very unstable dunes were occupied only by customs officers, who gave them the name of Bole, a term indicating an easily flooded maritime meadow.

The Grand Prix de la Baule was a Grand Prix motor racing event held here during the 1930s. Today, the Grand Prix de la Ville de La Baule is a prestigious equestrian show jumping competition that is part of the international Equestrian Nations Cup series.

Regarded as being "the most beautiful bay in Europe".

The commune of Escoublac has achieved a new vitality with the restoration of its civic center and the installation of many attractions.
