"Passing by Arcachon in July, I did not have much time to visit everything! It was unthinkable to to go around the bay by car to rejoin the Cap Ferret and risk to get into a 3-hour long traffic. My family and I embarked from the Thiers pier, at Arcachon for a nice crossing by boat and, in less than 30 minutes, we were at the Cap! Besides, the hours are easy, the shuttles leave every hour. Next time, we will take the bicycles with us!"
