Arcachon is a seaside resort town in southwest France that’s known for oyster harvesting. Its 4 districts are named after the seasons.

The Ville d’Été (summer) quarter is home to shopping streets, the town’s sandy main beach and a casino in the 19th-century Château Deganne.

Ville d’Hiver (winter quarter) has many extravagant 19th-century villas. South of the town is the Dune du Pilat, a 2.7-km natural sand dune which is a sight not to be missed.

 

As an enticing paradise of ecotourism, Arcachon presents a preserved natural heritage of a remarkable diversity.  It features Pilat Sand Mountain, Bird’s island, Cap Ferret, ornithological reserve, pine forests, salt meadows …. and much more.

 

An unforgettable spectacle of a peaceful and wild beauty, the boat trip on the Arcachon Bay is a truly wonderful experience.

The environment of Arcachon is conducive to multiple nautical and lake related activities.

 

The maritime heritage of the bay can also be discovered by bicycle, meandering from harbor to harbor, through oyster harvesting villages and breathtaking forests.
