Arcachon


Arcachon is a beautiful bay located at a 45 minutes’ drive away from Bordeaux.


Arcachon is a bay of 1500 hectares fed by the Atlantic ocean forming an inland sea with the colors of a lagoon, bordered on one side by a blond fine sand dune culminating at 104 meters: the Dune du Pyla, the biggest sand dune in Europe. From its summit you can also see the beautiful Landes forest.


The Bay of Arcachon is also home to the eponymous town where lots of wealthy French families spend their summer holidays.
