    • Lac de Léon is an expanse of water of 340 ha, it is one of the largest in the department, but it is less touristy than the other lakes of Biscarosse and Mimizan. The Lac de Léon is an environment preserved by the Natura 2000 classification. There are marshy areas, peat bogs, meadows and this harmonious ecosystem is host to many species of birds, insects and the famous pond turtle. Europe. It is a nice place to explore by bike, all around the lake there is a cycle path, which also goes to Contis, which can also be used for a walking tour. Take a galupe ride (a flat-bottomed boat) with the boatmen! Lac de Léon is also a great place for fishing, the lake's waters are full of fish, with predators and white fish.

    We often stay at the Col Vert camp site at Lac de Leon. With three small children we can BBQ by the lake a watch them float off in safety in the warm, shallow lake with it's little sandy beaches. It is also only 5 minutes to the Atlantic rollers and great surfing for the bigger kids like myself.

    Very shallow water where you can't properly swim. The beach is not very large.
