Your seaside holiday

Whether it’s luxury accommodation you want or a budget holiday, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for among our accommodation range. You’ll be able to swim every day during your holiday in Landes, with the beach just a few steps away from the campsite. Our vast beaches are ideal for pleasant moments of relaxation at any time of year. At low tide, the wide fine-sand beach is perfect for a quick stroll or long walk, barefoot across the sand and seashells. If you love building sandcastles you’ll find no shortage of sandy space once you’ve crossed the dune. At high tide you can enjoy your favourite watersports on the fabulous waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The bucolic setting of the surrounding Landes forest will ensure you totally immerse yourself in nature. You can explore by bike along one of the many designated cycle paths or follow a section of the Vélodyssée long-distance cycle path to discover the region of Nouvelle Aquitaine. Or you can simply plan a holiday hike on one of the numerous waymarked trails in the forest of Landes.

Direct beach access from the campsite

The advantage of staying on a seaside campsite is that you enjoy the luxury of direct access to the beach!

Impatient campers who can’t wait to have a dip will appreciate having direct access to the beach from Le Vieux Port campsite. The promise of a hassle-free holiday by the sea! Forget the traffic jams and long queues that every holidaymaker dreads! Just cross the dune and you’re at the water’s edge!

Forgotten your suncream or left the children’s beach games at the campsite? In just a few minutes the panic is over, you’re back on the beach, toes in the sand and nobody has noticed a thing!

If you enjoy early morning walks and pretending you own the whole beach, here you can rise at the crack of dawn and make the most of the absolute calm. The tranquillity of this place is disturbed only by the sound of rolling waves.

Or if, on the contrary, you’re a night owl who never tires of watching the sun go down over the ocean, then you'll be in the perfect place, when evening falls, to see the setting sun gently caress the horizon before disappearing into the ocean.

Safety at the beach

Your safety is taken seriously in Nouvelle Aquitaine, as you’ll realise from the lifeguard station that supervises part of the beach during July and August.

For your peace of mind on holiday, please respect the indications that tell you whether bathing is allowed or forbidden.

“Baïnes” are tidal pools that form in the seabed under the effect of the swell. Invisible at high tide, they generate strong rip currents. If you get caught in a baïne, do not try to swim against the current. Let it carry you out and you’ll be able to rejoin the shore further down the beach, without wearing yourself out by swimming.
