Head for ports such as Capbreton or Arechon for a day out in a boat, or try some surf-casting along the coast. For freshwater fish, try your luck at the Biscarrosse or Soustons lakes.

Sports & Activities
There’s golf courses galore along the coast. Biarritz has no less than eight, four of which are in the top 100 European courses.
Get right into the heart of the beautiful countryside of the region in a pair of walking boots or on a bike. Around Biscarrosse there are 120km of hiking paths and 20kms of cycling paths that go from the Atlantic to the Landes de Gascogne Nature Park.
If you’re a keen surfer you can pit yourself against the Atlantic (big waves guaranteed at Hossegor), whilst wannabe surfing dudes can learn how to hang ten at one of the many schools along the coast.
Teenagers (or big kids) love the high performance karts and big screen displaying lap times and race positions.
