1-) Go around the track, with the kids or with friends

The Gaillou Karting Circuit is the ideal place to spend a morning or a late afternoon having family fun after the beach ! The atmosphere is nice and it is not every day that we have the opportunity to challenge our children on a real "Mario Kart" . In July and August, there are even nocturnes , to race cool and discover new driving sensations.

For more information, see the information sheet for Karting du Gaillou

2-) Galloping on the beach and in the Landes forest

Riding on the beach , hooves in the water and the shiny and salty sea around you, like in the movies! Holidays are the perfect time to have fun, treat yourself to an equestrian hike in Capbreton . In training , in initiation or in improvement , from 3 years with small ponies , horse riding is an activity which pleases and which gets a great feeling of relaxation, of communion with nature! The Landes Guide recommends the Appaloosa Equestrian Center , for the quality of its support with riders of all ages and levels.

3-) A great mountain bike or bike ride

Did you know that there is a magnificent cycle path in Capbreton ? This even allows you to reach Bayonne in the Basque Country , along the coast . In the heart of the Landaise forest , along the beaches, it is a landscaped and secure track, for most of the route. With children , prefer the portion of Capbreton to Ondres, which is a beautiful quiet greenway, the rest to Ondres, Tarnos and to Boucau is a shared route, of good quality but with cars.

You can rent mountain bikes at VTT Loisirs Capbreton center , which has 4 agencies along the coast, to plan your route quietly. You will benefit from good advice on routes to do with the family or more costly for athletes!

Also trust Vélo d'Albret , which offers great rental services for all types of bikes. Adult, child, you can also book online and the right plan if you want to leave with a frame, it is to wait for the end of season sales ...

4-) Take a surf lesson, finally!

You have come to the right place to finally learn to surf. Not easy to take a board and launch yourself on the assault of the waves , this is why it is better to ask a few surf lessons from professional pedagogues , who will make you start off on the right foot! Several surf spots are available in Capbreton , it is important to inform yourself according to your level , accessibility and the content of the wave before setting off. We recommend the Capbreton Surfer French Surf School for open reception and a catalog of courses and courses for all levels.

Push also the door of the Supdivision surf school , Sébastien will give you all the advice to start the practice of this sport so fun and demanding at the same time. Having fun is objective N ° 1 of this school approved by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Human values at the meeting!

5-) Learn to sail or take a boat trip

Holidays by the sea are the perfect opportunity to go boating ! It would be a shame to admire the ocean only from the beach, wouldn't it? Embark on a sailing course , to learn how to handle the sails and the basics of navigation. If this learning seems complicated at first, it is nothing with the good advice and the handling of a small sailboat adapted to the level of each. Capbreton enjoys a great location to enhance beginners , with family or friends, we also discover the Landes from the sea! Contact us for the Skipcool sailing school , located at the port of Capbreton.

6-) Observe the coastline from the air, in an ULM


After the sea viewpoint, take off to admire Capbreton from the skies ! Aboard a microlight, you are mobile and agile, you can even join the family, from 7 years old. Trust Inaki your pilot , who has more than 1500 hours of flight time on the clock, a nice gift to make or to make ... ULM Littoral!
