Fouras is situated on a peninsula. It is bordered by five beaches and a forest called "Bois Vert" ("Green Wood" in English) which covers 20% of its area.
During low tide you can take the "Pointe de la Fumée" roadway in the direction of the Île-d'Aix to Fort Enet. The pier of the island of Aix is also located in the vicinity of the commune. The south coast of the peninsula of Fouras forms the northern side of the mouth of the Charente River. A little further south lies the Île d'Oléron. Offshore, between the islands of Oleron and Aix, lies the famous Fort Boyard, which is a "must see".
