Banc d'Arguin Day

Head for an exceptional natural universe:
Banc d'Arguin: sublime white sand natural reserve, sanctuary for many species of migratory birds, the Banc d'Arguin is a unique place. Some of the best oysters of the Basin are cultivated at the heart of the Banc: the "belles d'Arguin". An unmissable site!
This site is appreciated for the swimming and the relaxing afternoons.

To preserve the site, be careful:
The Banc d'Arguin is a high place for the nesting of many bird species.
Trash spoils these exceptional sites.

Make sure to bring a picnic.

"2h45 unforgettable cruse: we started from the Eyrac pier, we saw the beautiful cabins o the Bird Island then the boat left for the Cap Ferret, I really enjoyed the whole part on the oyster farming with the parks, the Cap oyster-farming villages, the captain explained the different farming techniques and, finally, the light was wonderful on the Arguin Bank and on the Dune. Just passing by Arcachon for the day, this excursion allowed us to discover the Bay in a minimal timing."

The Big Tour of the Bay... splendid !
