Around the Arcachon Bay

100 kilometres to discover the landscapes, fauna and flora of the Bassin : an authentic experience in a well-preserved natural environment...
The Bassin d'Arcachon is the only lake on the Aquitaine coast to have maintained an opening to the sea. Twice a day, the water of this inland sea is renewed by the tide through narrow channels. For many years only frequented by fishermen, the Bassin d'Arcachon became the kingdom of the oyster in the middle of the last century and its 84 km of beaches fringed with pine trees make it an original and privileged place, unique to the French coast.
Delimited by the wild ocean to the west, the Bordeaux vineyards to the north and east, and by the huge Landes Forest to the south, the Bassin enjoys a mild climate where the invigorating aromas of the sea air and the pine trees mingle. The calm waters of the Bassin are the love of those who appreciate nature at its finest, where there are none of the dangers associated with ocean beaches and the temperature of the water is very pleasant. Through little ports with their coloured cabins; along the huge beaches; in the calm of the nature reserves for the birds and the pine forests; this walk is filled with the scent of sea air, the perfume of the pine trees, and mimosa and gênet shrubs.
