The magic of the Arcachon Bay

Neither creek nor lake, the Bay is subject to the rhythm of the tides but is protected from the ocean by the spit of land at Cap Ferret. We can tell you how it works, about oysters and the huge forest in Les Landes, the dunes, the sand… 

Dune de Pilat or Pyla?

South of Arcachon a mountain made of sand awaits, the Dune de Pilat, roughly 111m high. Come and find out about this natural phenomenon with one of our guides. 

Ile aux oiseaux and the town of Arcachon...

Why not take a boat trip around “Bird Island” and the wooden huts on stilts, known locally as “cabanes tchanquées”.

Spend some time strolling with your guide around the impressive “winter town” of Arcachon and relive the days when aristocrats from all over Europe flocked here to savour the healthy, fresh air.


Let the magic of the Bassin d’Arcachon carry you away: enjoy the change of scene !

Watching the movie.
