Arcachon bay is one of the areas most popular resorts, boasting a vibrant town, pleasant beach and a number of brilliant shops and restaurants. The nearest beach to the campsite however is within walking distance on the other side of the Dune du Pilat.
Long, sandy and sheltered, the beach is the perfect place for a family day out. Swim in the sea, play by the shore and let the kids run up and down the dune to wear themselves out.
