The Landes are one of the most favorable regions for photography. Between the magnificent panoramas on the Côte d'Argent, the misty photos of the undergrowth of the Landes de Gascogne Regional Park, the perspectives on the wine-growing hillsides of Armagnac, the bucolic landscapes of Chalosse, along the banks of the Adour… you won't lack inspiration to fill your holiday photo albums. Let's go for a photo road-trip in the heart of the Landes.

Shooting at the foot of the Contis Lighthouse

The Contis Lighthouse is an unusual and yet traditional monument to the maritime heritage of the Landes coast. With its black and white stripes, it stands out well above the forest canopy. You can't miss it! Once inside, all you have to do is climb its 183 steps to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Côte d'Argent and the Landes forest.

Look out over the ocean from the Capbreton Pier

The Capbreton pier is a witness to history. If the storms have damaged it a lot, it has survived the ages and remains an important place in the city. The wooden pier is nearly 200 meters above the ocean, making it a popular spot for photographers. At its end, the lantern lighthouse guides sailors and gives a visual cue to your photos.

Geometric angle view of sand dunes

To appreciate the line of the seafront, nothing like taking a little height. On the Cap de l'Homy beach, wooden walkways have been installed. They allow you to pose your device and cut the landscape with straight lines, forming geometric figures on the sand. Here is an original point of view, which highlights the Landes coastline.

Photo report in the protected natural sites of the Landes

In the Landes, many sites are protected because they are on the migratory route of several bird species. In addition, there are many lakes, streams, mountain streams and other waterways that are home to rare and sensitive flora and fauna. These are observation areas, recognized among ornithology enthusiasts. "Nature" photographers will be able to take out their most technological devices to capture these privileged moments.
