Are you into watersports? You’ll be spoilt for choice in Gironde! Rent a board or bring your own, and off you go for an afternoon of surfing or paddleboarding! Looking for something unique? Discover the “mascaret”, a tidal bore that has you surfing, incredibly, on a wave in the Gironde Estuary! If you’re not sure you'll keep your balance, opt for canoeing, diving or fishing instead.
Back on dry land, grab your walking shoes and go exploring Arcachon Bay and the famous Dune of Pilat, the highest dune in the whole of Europe. From the top, you’ll enjoy magnificent views over the vast Landes forest and can even watch the sun setting over the Bay!
Go walking, cycling or even horseriding to explore Gironde and its many wine estates. Stop along the way to sample the local produce, from oysters to grand cru wines. Visit the wine estate of your choice to taste the white, red and rosé wines of Bordeaux!
