The most beautiful be ...

From the first heat, we only dream of this: Bathing, lounging in the sun ... Lazing and picnicking by the sea are finally on the agenda! The Landes coast is no less than 106 km of beaches stretching as far as the eye can see ! The walk may turn into a marathon ... We will help you a little, with a selection of the most popular beaches on the Silver Coast ! No official classification, we start from the Gironde estuary towards the south in the direction of Adour .

Vivier Beach

We start our lazy journey on the North Coast of the Landes , in Biscarosse , where 15 km of white sand awaits you. Among all its beaches, that of Vivier stands out for its wild side , nestled in the heart of a dune . She is known for her good waves . Surfers will enjoy ...

The atmosphere is ideal for learning to surf , stand up or paddle at Point Break school.

There are also plenty of other activities in Biscarosse, such as golf and its gourmet restaurant or a ride on an electric scooter in the nearby forest.

Navarosse Beach


We stay in Biscarosse, but we change sides… This time, it is the calm waters of a lake that await us quietly. First steps in the water for the little ones , shaded walk under the pines, the setting is family .

Want to spice things up a bit? Ski, monoski, wakeboard, wakesurf, flyfish, big buoy , or even parasailing , there is something for all tastes and all ages at the Wake & Ski school .

  • Do you need calm? Enjoy the serenity of the lake during a boat trip with the Compagnie des Lacs .

Remember Beach


Families are welcomed at Mimizan-Plage . Large car park, easy access from the city, supervised swimming in summer, lifeguard station ... But this large 10 km beach conceals many secrets ... Going down towards the south, you will find small, quieter corners in the hollow of the dunes . You will rather come across surfers , fishermen and some naturists.

Large expanse of sand or small , cozy nests , you will no doubt remember this atypical beach .

Contis Beach


In Saint Julien en Born , the beach of Contis is wild . Bordered by forests , currents make certain areas dangerous. Swimming is therefore only authorized in front of the seaside resort . It remains an ideal site for nature lovers .

Lette Blanche beach


A nice name for a beach full of mystery ... Softness, intimacy, romance ... The place is ideal for romantic dates . He is also well known to the locals. It takes place at the end of the afternoon, to appreciate its magnificent sunsets .

Chênes Lièges Beach


We continue our descent to the South Coast of the Landes . Let's stop at Molietset Mâa , this beach takes its name from the oak forest that surrounds it. Moreover, to reach it, a walk in the shade of these trees of a little less than a kilometer is essential. This preserved environment deserves!

Not to be missed in the surroundings: an unusual walk on the Huchet current or its nature reserve , called the "small Amazon of the Landes" .

Bourdaines Beach


In Seignosse , we find ourselves again on a large beach , where swimming is supervised and where you will have all the comforts (showers, toilets, first aid station, etc.). Surfers will not be left out, this is one of the most popular spots in the region.

And to vary the pleasures of the family , do not miss the Atlantic Park , the largest aquatic park on the Aquitaine coast!

Nearby, on the South Beach, the Tao Magic Glisse offers surf courses .

Oceanides Beach


You like to contemplate the power of the ocean , it is further south, after Capbreton , that you have to go. On the Océanides beach, you could think you were at the end of the world , far from any civilization. The size of the dunes , the strength of the currents…, nature puts us in our place! We only have to admire his majesty ...

And to discover Cape Breton differently , see our article on Cape Breton sports vacations .
