The lake as a playground

The lake and the ocean, two magical natural spaces for nature lovers

Lacanau is line of dunes between the Landes lakes and the Atlantic beaches, which offers you numerous possibilities to be good to yourself, in or around our campsite!

First of all, the lake, sheltered from the prevailing winds, with its lagoon-like appearance and its transparent waters that fluctuate between 24 and 28°C, offers all the facilities for you to indulge in your favourite water sports, paddle boat, canoeing, sailing or kite surfing.

For those who wish to keep their feet on the ground, take advantage of the 200 kms of cycle paths or the many hiking trails. We strongly recommend that you hike in the Cousseau national nature reserve, alternating paths between the forest and lakeside, to discover a real natural, preserved ecosystem “slowly”.


On the other hand, there is the ocean only 7 kms away. Another place, another atmosphere, “Bordeaux’s California” unveils its immense beaches and its mythical waves that surfers love, another story that we will tell you below.

Surf Sessions

Surfing culture is omnipresent in Lacanau, one of the best spots in Médoc Atlantique

Lacanau-Océan, welcome to the temple of surfing! On your stomach, on your knees or standing up, this is the perfect opportunity to get on a board, for the first or thousandth time, and experience unique sensations in surfing, wakeboarding, body-boarding or windsurfing.

Every August, Lacanau becomes the Mecca of world surfing with the Caraibos Lacanau Pro. It’s an opportunity to see the best international surfers compete against each other, and also to experience an event that brings the resort to life for several weeks with craft stands, sponsor entertainment and live concerts.

However, the ocean is not only for surfers! For those who want to meander and enjoy the beach, Lacanau offers leisure activities for all, supervised swimming areas and clubs on the beach, to enjoy the benefits of the sea spray.
