Bordeaux is close to the Atlantic Ocean and a superb and protected spot: the Arcachon Bay.
"A small, interior sea" opens to the Atlantic backed by a pine forest. A wide, triangular slash, hemmed by picturesque fishermen villages, and punctuated by the incessant come-and-go of the tides, the Bay of Arcachon is an incomparable site that you discover each time for the first time.
Upon arrival, you will board a pinasse –a typical wooden boat- to enjoy a tour of the Arcachon Bay including a close-up view of the oyster parks. With your skipper, you will discover the area ‘like a local’ and learn all there is to know about traditions and treasures from this beautiful part of France! You will make a stop at the Cap Ferret to taste its famous oysters with a glass of white wine and a breathtaking view of the Dune du Pyla –Europe’s highest sand dune that rises to some 110m over the sea.
Before you leave, stop for lunch at Philippe Starck’s trendy hotel La Co(o)rniche, from where the view over the Cap Ferret peninsula is breathtaking.
A truly unique and authentic experience.
