A dune area
La Turballe has the longest and most beautiful dune cord on the peninsula. There are 2 types of dunes:
- The white dune or mobile dune. It forms the transition between the tidal swing zone and the terrestrial environment. There is vegetation whose role is to fix the dune. There are protected plants such as the blue thistle, also called the Panicaut de mer.
- The gray dune, which takes its name from the color of its plant "carpet" made up of mosses and small lichens. Also called a fixed dune, due to the lack of sand movement.
