For a successful stay in Arcachon, you must go to the Pointe du Cap Ferret. From the Pointe, you can admire a magnificent panorama of the Bassin d'Arcachon.

To get there, we advise you to go through the Abécédaire des Dunes. This 5km path will allow you to discover the fauna and flora of Cap Ferret. The Abécédaire is aptly named because all along your walk you will find signs with the letters of the alphabet explaining everything about the dunes, the tides, the migration of birds, etc. Once you reach the end of the path, you can sit down in the sand and admire a magnificent 180° view of the Bassin d'Arcachon, the Dune du Pilat and the Banc d'Arguin.

This place will allow you to escape for a few hours in a magnificent wild landscape where you can admire the meeting of the Atlantic Ocean and the Bassin d'Arcachon. At the Pointe, nature is king and the force of the elements is felt. In winter, powerful waves and stormy winds take place, while in summer, this place becomes peaceful and favourable to relaxation.


At the extremity of the Pointe du Cap Ferret is a majestic lighthouse overlooking the Bassin d'Arcachon. Listed as a historical monument since 2009, the Cap Ferret lighthouse is recognised for its heritage value. It is part of the identity of the Bassin d'Arcachon.

Every year, it attracts thousands of visitors, which is why we advise you to visit it and discover its history. During your visit, you will have the opportunity to go to the top of the lighthouse which will allow you to benefit from an incredible 360° panorama on the whole Bassin d'Arcachon. We recommend that you go to the top at the beginning or end of the day so that you can admire the changing colour of the sky as the minutes pass. Be careful, to reach the top, you will have to climb the 258 steps of the lighthouse!

To finish your visit to this wonderful place, we advise you to visit the Lighthouse souvenir shop. You can find original and unique objects that you will not see anywhere else.

Don't wait any longer, go to the Pointe du Cap Ferret to spend a magical moment.
