In southwest France, just south of Bordeaux and the glimmering Bay of Arcachon, lies Biscarrosse. It is a remarkable three-in-one holiday destination. Biscarrosse-Plage presides over immensely long, sandy beaches with the rolling surf of the Atlantic Ocean crashing their shores. Biscarrosse-Ville is an established, lively resort offering all and any activity you could wish for. And Biscarrosse-Lac sits around not one but three tranquil, inland, freshwater lakes reminiscent of a giant lagoon in the South Pacific. Even better, it’s also ‘home’ to nearby Siblu holiday park, La Réserve. So, welcome to Biscarrosse – ‘Bisca’ to its friends – the town with something for everyone. Located just a little further south is Les Dunes de Contis, another charming holiday park set in a beautiful forest.

Beaches
The Atlantic swell lures in surfers, while the lakeside beaches are safe and superbly sandy for the young and less adventurous! Truth be told, between Biscarrosse-Plage and Biscarrosse-Lac, you can indulge in every seaside activity and water sport imaginable, from sandcastle building and paddling, to surfing, sailing, sand yachting and beach volleyball. Biscarrosse also has endless kilometres of excellent cycle routes with plenty of bike hire options available. Walkers can explore dunes, lakes and the remarkable Landes de Gascogne forest. And golfers can choose between beautiful courses perched between ocean, lagoon and woodland, or a bit of crazy golf at the seaside. Great fun for all, then!

Things to do and special events
If the unimaginable happens, and you tire of beach and lakeside, seek out AquaPark: it has the whole gamut of thrills and spills of giant inflatables on water. Or get to grips with the area’s cultural heritage and pay a visit to the Musée des Traditions et de l’Histoire in Biscarrosse town, or cruise the lakes and marshes of the surrounding area on a relaxing yet highly informative boat trip. Throughout the summer months, Biscarrosse also buzzes with live music and evening entertainment, a perfect way to enjoy warm, balmy nights.

Local discoveries and hidden gems
As the hometown of Latécoère, Biscarrosse is intrinsically linked with sea planes, and a visit to the Musée de l'Hydraviation will let you find out all there is to know about these aircraft and view some full-size planes too. Biscarrosse and the Landes region are also famous for stilt walking, and take great pride in celebrating this tradition. Make sure you experience a stilt-walking spectacle – you can even try it for yourself! There’s no shortage of dining options in Biscarrosse either, and whether you are tempted to try fresh, local seafood or Gascon/Landaise specialties such as Bayonne ham, foie gras or salade landaise (with duck gizzards), you will leave neither hungry nor disappointed… Bon Appetit!
