Salt or saline marshes are a set of shallow ponds, called tiles, in which the salt is harvested, obtained by evaporation of sea water, under the combined action of the sun and wind.

They are a type of agricultural operation whose activity is called salt production or in its old form, the Saunerie. Those who harvest salt from the salt marshes are called saliculteurd or salt workers or sea-salt. Those that carry to sell are called marsh.

amer la riviereAmers of ''Phare des Baleines'' and beach of ''La Conche''


2 strange buildings located on the dune between the Phare des Baleines and the beach La Conche

Amers are fixed and high points, easily identifiable and along the coast to serve as landmarks for sailors.

On the île de Ré, to which access is not always easy due to the presence of rocky and sandy shoals, ''amers'' were important. Windmills, church spiers and buildings scattered along the shore, reported access for avoiding hazardous areas.

  • The Amer de la Rivière  6 meters high, was around 1860, at a time when the dune was not forested like today. It was used alignment point to sailors between the ''Phare des Baleineaux'' and the ''Banc du Bûcheron''.
