For half a century, the boom of Saint-Jean-de-Monts is a promenade and appointment of highly sought after fishing. This is the iconic image postcard of Saint-Jean-de-Monts.

This advanced into the sea a little over 400 meters was built in 1963 to develop the attractiveness of the resort and apart from its large neighboring Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie and Noirmoutier. It became over the years the preferred site of plaice fishermen and line and also serves as a docking for connection by boat with the island of Yeu.

Many storms have damaged over the years. In the mid 2000s it was decided to rebuild the same. In early 2012, the reconstruction has begun. It is made of wood Tali, an exotic wood rot.

Reopened to the pedestrian promenade and fishing since May 7, 2013, it offers a superb view over Saint-Jean-de-Monts, neighborhood golf, and offers an extension of the embankment of 5 km. The night the heck is illuminated.

It is expected from 2014 to reopen a connection boat season, with the island of Yeu.
