Arcachon Bay

Just an hour's drive away from Bordeaux, the Arcachon Bay offers deep blue waters, shiny white sand, a "bird island" and stunning views in a pleasant micro-climate. It has inspired poets, writers, singers, but also movies and is ideal for a day at the beach or a long bicycle ride. Shaped by oyster culture, it is also a great dining spot.
