What are the beaches of Hossegor, ocean side?

From the Arcachon basin to the Basque Country, the beaches of the Landes are among the most beautiful in France. If we call it the Côte d'Argent, it is because it is absolutely beautiful. To the south of the Landes coast, Hossegor is a very pleasant seaside resort for tourists as it offers many activities. To make you want to stay there, we take you from north to south, on the four beaches of the Atlantic coast of Hossegor:

  • The North Beach is the first in the town, after Seignosse. It is protected from the residential district of Hossegor by the dune cordon. This is a naturist beach. Quite rare on this type of beach, swimming is supervised there in season. All audiences can go there, in a very friendly atmosphere. A parking lot borders the entire boulevard du Front de mer. There is a restaurant at your disposal on the beach. You will also find a surf school here.

What you will love: The naturist beach of Hossegor.


  • The Beach of la Gravière is a little more difficult to access for families than the central beach, because the dune line is wider and higher there. The car park along the boulevard du Front de mer is therefore a little further from the waterfront. In addition, there are no specific facilities for children, nor any shops nearby. There is still a restaurant and a surf school. Swimming is supervised there in season. It is very popular with athletes for its slightly wilder side.

What you will like: It is a very famous surf spot.

  • The Central Beach is the favorite site for families. There is a landscaped pedestrian promenade, with shops, cafes and restaurants. Several car parks are available along Boulevard de la Dune. Stairs facilitate access to the beach. Swimming is supervised. It's a lively place, where children are sure to make friends and have fun. On the other hand, it is sometimes a victim of its own success and there can be a lot of people in season.

What you will love: The most family-friendly beach in Hossegor on the ocean side.


Hossegor Beach


  • The South Beach forms the end of the Atlantic facade of Hossegor. It is extended by Notre-Dame Beach, which is located in the town of Capbreton. The walk to the Capbreton Estacade is really worth the detour. You will have a beautiful view of the Passe de Boucarot. It is a very urban beach, where the dune cordon is non-existent. Beautiful houses line the beach. You will also find surf schools, restaurants, parking… For children, there is even a Mickey Club.

What you will like: Many surf schools are at your disposal for an initiation. All you have to do is choose your atmosphere.

Where to swim in Hossegor, lake side?

If you don't want to play in the waves and fight against the wind and the sand, try the beaches on the lake side. Hossegor Lake has a particularity: it is a marine lake! It is supplied with sea water by the Canal d'Hossegor and the Passe du Boucarot. It is therefore subject to the tides. You can go around it. Part of its shores is bordered by the Landes forest. On the other side is the town center of Hossegor and its tourist activities. Water sports are favored there because there is no current and you will take pleasant walks on the water by boat, canoe or on a paddle... Four beaches are at your disposal:

  • Chênes-Lièges Beach is very pleasant because it allows you to go from the lake to the ocean in no time. Barely 2 km separates it from the coast. It is directly accessible from downtown Hossegor. In addition, it is also the starting point for a lovely walk along the Canal d'Hossegor towards the Estacade de Capbreton. This fine sandy beach is also popular with families because it has all the amenities: toilets, restaurant, paddle rental...

What you will love: The children's club.


  • Rey Beach is a small beach on the eastern shore of the lake. It is quite narrow and on the side of the road. With its sailing school, it appeals more to athletes. On the other hand, the Landes forest is very close. You will be able to relax at the edge of the water after a walk in the forest.
