Things to do when camping in Gironde

The department is well known for the long stretches of sand that define its coast, with excellent examples found in and around the striking Arcachon Bay. Idle away a sunny day bathing on the soft sands and building castles on the beaches of Plage de l'océan, Plage du Pereire and Plage Du Truc Vert.

An area of outstanding beauty, the bay features Lège-Cap-Ferret and Banc d’Arguin nature reserves, where visitors can enjoy peaceful walking and cycling trips in the midst of lovely flora and fauna. For a day appreciating our fine feathered friends, the island of île aux Oiseaux in the middle of the bay offers a great opportunity for birdwatching.

No camping holiday in Gironde would be complete without a visit to the famous Dune du Pilat, which lies a short distance south of Arcachon. Claiming status as Europe’s tallest dune, this sandy mountainous attraction rewards visitors with panoramas of the Atlantic Ocean and the wooded coastline. Appreciate the views from the dune’s ridge while enjoying a picnic lunch and decide between spending the afternoon on the beach or walking in the pine woodland.

The northern part of the Landes de Gascogne Regional Park stretches into Gironde from neighbouring Landes, and features everything you’d expect from a brilliant French National Park. Enjoy lovely walking trails, horse riding expeditions and canoeing down the gentle flow of the Leyre River. The Grande Lande Ecomuseum is a great place to visit to learn more about the park.

In the central section of coast in Gironde, several lakes and lagoons battle with the beach for your attention and eagerness to try some water sports. Head to the sea for surfing, wind surfing and jet skiing, while the lakes of Lac d'Hourtin-Carcans and Étang de Lacanau are perfect for kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddle boarding. For the chance to whizz down water slides and make a splash in the pool, head to Aqualiday Water Park .

While the department is primed for outdoor activities in nature, make sure you allocate some time to experience the cultural and historical aspects of Gironde. In Bordeaux, along with the city’s famous wineries, you can visit top attractions including Place de la Bourse, Bordeaux Cathedral, the Grand Théâtre and the Pey Berland Tower. After your fill of culture, spend the afternoon sipping full-bodied red wine on the Bordeaux Wine Tasting tour, and stop by the Cité du Vin Exhibition Space or Le musée du Vin de Bordeaux Museum.

Also boasting sumptuous wines, Médoc captivates visitors with its abundance of charming chateaux. There are so many to choose from in the area, but we recommend a visit to Château de Guilleragues, Castle Roquetaillade or Château Malromé.
