The aquatic center : Les Antilles de Jonzac
First of all, the Antilles of Jonzac are one of the largest water parks in Europe and for sure, it is a children’s paradise all year round!
Very young, it is the baby swimmers who take the spotlight on weekend mornings. Older children utter WAHOU when they hear the foghorn. It announces the waves in the lagoon pool. The eyes sparkle at the thought of taking on the toboggan. Then swimming while watching the fish through a window is always fun. And what about the jousting between giant buoys or the jets of water that tumble over the outer beaches?
Truly, the Les Antilles aquatic center in Jonzac is a must-see in all weather conditions, less than an hour from Angoulême, Royan or Bordeaux!
