Great view point at sunset. FAB colours.

Departure points for the sea-buses across the bay or just a stroll to enjoy the views across this gorgeous bay.

come here after a hectic day, after dinner, relax, enjoy one of the freshest and cleanest airs in the world, coming thousands of km straight over the Atlantic ocean into your lungs; observe the subtle light changes, hear the noise of the beach and the city going close to zero and meditate.

Ideal jumping off point for a tour of the Bassin after lunch. There are a wide selection of routes and operators and the views of the Parc des Huitres and the fishing villages are well worthwhile. Word of warning - if you do not speak fluent French, ask if there is an English translation. Our French is OK but not... More

Enjoyable view of the boat traffic and people boarding and leaving ferries and sight seeing tours. Frequently music and singing performers are there. Benches to sit and enjoy a crème glacé and survey beach side restaurants.

One of the iconic soghts in the city buzzing with life, boats. You can take shuttles to cross the bay, you see the yello whale's tail! Go there by a sunny daynwith a great icecream. That.'s'the best

You can catch a ferry from here to Cap Ferret for €13 return. As jetties go it's a nice one and quite new.

Great place to watch the water traffic go past and look along the beach, but the structure is nothing more than functionary, just set in an amazing location - Arcachon We caught the catamaran ride from here,

Not a long pier, but well maintained with a lot of seating and nice big platform at the end for people wanting to hang out or take pictures, etc. The whole sea side area is quite pleasant and low key, with the lovely views and an easy going vibe. It is a nice mix between commercialization and the simplicity of... More
