What to do in Cap Ferret

Hello all,

I’ll be heading to Cap Ferret later in June with my family. We ‘ll be staying in the village le Canon and have hired a car.

Does anyone have any must see/do siggestions while we’re there? Dune de pilat and hiring bikes are already on our list.

To get to Dune du Pilat you take the foot passenger ferry across the bay. There is no other way other than an 85km drive.

I am pretty certain you would have to go to Arcachon or Le Moulleau then take the €1 bus from there to the dune.

I went there last year and nearly did myself serious damage walking up there.

Check the local tourist office websites for Cap-Ferret, Arcachon etc., which are full of info about what to see and do, as are guidebooks.
