Our Bordeaux summer: a day out on Le Bassin d’Arcachon / L’été près de Bordeaux sur le Bassin d’Arcachon

Winter, Covid, curfew, etc… We are not living our happiest time at the moment… I am really looking forward to our summer, hoping we will be able to enjoy our beautiful beaches/landscapes…

Between Love & Hate ! An ambigram sculpture…

The Arcachon bay: boat trips

From the Île aux Oiseaux, to the sumptuous Lège Cap-Ferret Peninsula out to the oyster farms, getting a boat trip makes it possible for you to discover Arcachon to the sound of lapping water in just a few hours. And this is what I did. Big 2 hours tour around Île aux Oiseaux for 16€ (really worth it !)

Dune du Pyla

Cap Ferret Peninsula

After the boat trip, let’s eat a crêpe !

Having a beer + a crêpe is not really cheap here (I paid 12€ for both), however it is very relaxing. I sat on this table, reading for almost 1 hour, taking the sun, enjoying the view and this snack. Beautiful end of the day !

Use the train from Pessac or Bordeaux to Arcachon, quick & no traffic!
