Things to see and do
There are plenty of things to see and do, and places to visit, within a short distance of Sylvamar campsite including:
- Bayonne – Bayonne is located within the Basque country and as such many of it’s buildings and architecture have a Basque look to them with lots of colourful shutters and doors. There have been people living around Bayonne since Roman times, however much of it’s buildings date back to medieval times. Along with the great variety of buildings Bayonne was once a fortified town and much of the ramparted walls exist today. The best way to explore Bayonne is to walk around the myriad of streets as within them you’ll discover a variety of shops, bars and restaurants to explore. Two things worth seeing whilst in Bayonne is the church and the Musee Bonnat. Within the museum you’ll discover a wonderful collection of paintings by artists such as Rubens, Goya, El Greco and Degas.

The town boasts a great variety of Basque styled buildings and there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants where you can relax. It is worth noting that the surfing is not for the absolute beginner as the Atlantic waves can be quite powerful at times. Those with younger children will find the lake at Hossegor quite useful when the waves begin to get a little larger. Behind the town you can also explore the Landes forest which is very popular with those interested in walking and especially with cyclists.
- La Pinede des Singes – La Pinede des Singes offers you the chance to walk through a 6 hectare park in the Landes forest and see a variety of monkeys roaming free amongst the trees. There are over 150 species of monkey in total and believe us when we tell you, children are amazed by these lovely creatures, watching them play their funny games, their cheeky faces and their energy. Please note that the park is open from Easter and the entry prices are very reasonable.
- Zoo de Labenne – Covering around 5 hectares, the Zoo de Labenne is home to approximately 200 animals covering around 60 different species.
