Overview

Parc highlights

Where Bordeaux meets the sea, you’ll find yourself in Aquitaine. Here, close to the wide beaches and sizzling Atlantic surf, you’ll enjoy watersports, cycling through maritime forests or sun bathing.

You might head inland, though - and enjoy a vineyard visit or two! Your wooden clad house or apartment is conveniently close to your resort’s relaxing pool. Just beyond, lie 14 kilometres of fine, golden sand. But it’s the combination of ocean, lake and forest that makes Lacanau such an effortless base for getting close to nature - however you want to experience it. Shopping and eating, too, come naturally here! Within its core of pretty whitewashed, red-tiled buildings, Lacanau hosts a surprisingly vibrant array of casinos, nightclubs and bars to keep you active until the early hours.
