La Baule-Escoublac, also called La Baule, it is a fashionable resort in the Loire-Atlantique department and the Brittany region. It lies along the Atlantic coast near the mouth of the Loire River, west of Saint-Nazaire. Facing south and protected from the north wind by 1,000 acres (400 hectares) of dune-stabilizing maritime pines, it is on a crescent-shaped bay in the centre of a fine sand beach 5 miles (8 km) long. Headlands at each end of the bay shelter the town from east and west winds. Created in 1879, it and Biarritz are the best-known Atlantic resorts. Behind the line of the seafront hotels, luxurious villas are dotted among the pines. The town has a park, an open-air school, a casino, golf and tennis clubs, and a yacht harbour. Nearby are salt marshes.

La Baule is Brittany’s most fashionable and expensive resorts. La Baule is also the Loire-Atlantique's answer to the French Riviera. Its affluent housing fronts what is possibly the most attractive beach on the Atlantic Coast. The coastal areas are becoming increasingly popular with British visitors but they still retain a very strong sense of their French identity. Today it is favoured by the French rather than foreigners, a popular holiday destination for the Parisian upper-middle-class when they need to unwind.
