Authentic oyster-fishing villages combined with chic districts and a stunning natural landscape

The Bay is holiday-heaven for 'discerning' Francophiles and especailly those who love to be out on the water. 

Covering over 100km of coastline from Pyla Plage, through Arcachonround to Cap Ferret, there are beaches for everyone from toddlers to championship surfers; pine forests, vast sand duneschic towns, historic oyster-farming villages, adventure parks for kids and cycle trails too. Sailors are drawn to the Bay's beautiful waters, as are bird-watchers and nature-lovers too. 

The Bay oozes a laid-back, unpretentious style that makes you quickly feel at home. We love it.
