Assaulting the Basin on a paddle

The waters of the Arcachon Basin are quite calm, but there is a bit of current. You will see when you arrive, the bathers never stray too far from the edge, or let themselves be carried by the Bayains. Paddle renters offer to rent a board to sail at your own pace, with oars and your balance. For those who don’t know the concept yet, the Paddle is a great board on which you must be standing. Thanks to the oars, you can move forward, turn and admire the landscape that is available to you. If you haven’t acquired the balance yet, there’s nothing to stop you from sitting and continuing to enjoy your experience.

Like any activity on water, remember to moisturize yourself and coat yourself with sunscreen before you leave, as reverberation of the sun can be beneficial for your skin.

You are a few kilometres from the famous Dune du Pilat, a hundred meters high. You can freely access it climbing it by the stairs or by staying in the sand to admire the panorama it offers you: in front of you, the reward of your effort, a breathtaking view of the Basin and the Bank of Arguin, and behind you the huge forest pine trees. Going down the other side of the Dune, you can swim and enjoy an intimate beach and a unique décor. Don’t hesitate to bring a picnic, towels and swimsuits, and enjoy your effort!
