The Pointe de Suzac at Saint Georges de Didonne is a rocky cape in the Gironde estuary, between the main beach of St Georges de Didonne and the beach of Suzac. It is divided between the municipalities of Saint Georges de Didonne and Meschers sur Gironde, and is located opposite the Pointe de Grave.
It has many blockhouses that were built during the Second World War which allowed the Germans to strategically control the passage of boats on the Gironde estuary.
The site also contains the remains of a fort dating from the Napoleonic era. Blockhouses are now easily accessible, and are often covered in graffiti.
The Pointe de Suzac is a protected area and since 2015 has been part of the Marine Natural Park of the Gironde Estuary and the Pertuis Sea. It represents the limit between the ocean and the estuary of the Gironde. It is pleasant to walk there by taking the coastal path accessible from the beach of Saint Georges de Didonne. You can also take the opportunity to visit the Estuary Park, near the Pointe de Suzac.
