Numerous promenades are possible around Le Verdon. Let yourself be guided by the red and white markers of the GR 8, beginning at La Pointe de Grave. You will go along the bike path that goes through the woods until Soulac-Sur-Mer and the rail road of Pointe de Grave - Soulac, still in service during high season. The trail, in green on the map, will guide you until the pretty Saint Nicolas lighthouse, to come back by the fort of Le Verdon and the blockades from world war 2...
