Discover the beauties of the Arcachon Basin

Discover the beauties of the Arcachon Basin


When summer comes, I love to go to Arcachon for the holidays in order to cut myself off from Parisian life and spend a few weeks at the edge of the Basin. After having placed my suitcases at the hotel Le B d'Arcachon, my holidays really start and enjoy the beach, the sun and the sea punctuate my days. 

But the Arcachon region is full of treasures and its natural diversity makes it an area to discover. During a stay in the Basin, some activities are essential and they always bring the same pleasure.


To spend an unforgettable stay in Arcachon, 4 places around the Basin are essential to visit. Located in the centre of the Basin, “l’île aux oiseaux” is one of the region's landmarks. Accessible at low tide with its “Tchanquées houses”, it will leave you with unforgettable memories. 

To admire the landscape, you have to know how to take height. Climbing the famous Dune du Pyla in addition to doing sports will offer you a breath-taking view of the Basin, certainly one of the most beautiful panoramas in France. 

Sunbathing is always a moment of pleasure, but doing it in the middle of the sea in front of the Dune du Pyla transforms this time into an exceptional moment. This is what the “banc d'Arguin” offers you, a piece of sand floating on the sea accessible at low tide. 

Return to the coast of the peninsula to enjoy the oysters of the Basin between the oyster houses of the “village de l'Herbe”, so enjoy a moment of relaxation with a glass of wine. 

Thanks to these 4 activities, you will enjoy magical moments that will make you love the Arcachon Basin like I do.
