Nature in all its splendour

Located fifty kilometres from Bordeaux, the Arcachon Bay is a marine nature park with a lagoon that extends over 155 km2, at high tide.
Among the unmissable activities in the bay, we would recommend the Dune of Pilat, but also the Cap Ferret headland and even the Île aux Oiseaux.

There are a multitude of activities running all year round

Say Arcachon Bay, think water - the aquatic activities are as numerous as they are varied: fishing, diving, sailing, canoeing, going on a barge, rowing boat, water skiing, and jet-skiing are just some of the things on offer at the Bay.

Those of you who prefer to take the skies won't be disappointed either. The Region can't be beaten when it comes to recreational aviation. ULM, Deltaplanes, parachutes, gliders, helicopters, paragliders… so many different ways to admire the scenery while up in the clouds.

Finally, the 12 towns around Arcachon Bay offer relaxation activities, walks, bike trails, theme parks and even a golf club!
