Top 5 travel tips

1. To the harbour of the municipality worth seeing

The port of Arcachon is the second largest leisure port on the Atlantic coast and the only deepwater port in the bay. Visit the countless ships and yachts that moor here all year round and don't forget to visit the historic quay with its traditional ships. At the port there is also the "Monument des Péris en mer", which was erected to commemorate those people who lost their lives in the sea.

2. Visit unique church buildings

The Saint-Ferdinand church, which was originally built as a chapel, has shone in a neo-Romanesque light since 1900. You must also take a look at the 42-metre-high church tower on which the statue of the Sacré-Coeur is located. A little outside the city centre you will find the Notre-Dame des Passes, which was built in 1864 in the Tuscan and Byzantine style. Inside you can admire one of the few remaining statues of Mary in hope in France.

3. Encounters with unusual plants in the park

Take a stroll through the Mauresque Park, created in 1863 by Paul Regnauld as a casino park. On an area of four hectares you will discover here some rare plant species and at the same time experience a breathtaking view of the city. If you don't want to climb up to the park, there is a free lift available for you.

4. The landmark over the sea

The Thiers Mole was first built in 1903. Due to the massive impact of the Atlantic, it had to be rebuilt about a hundred years later. However, the original architectural style was preserved. The Thiers Mole is considered a landmark of Arcachon and is ideal for walks across the roaring sea.

5. Experience music, dance and literature live

Every spring Arcachon hosts the literary event "Plage aux Écrivains", which attracts many visitors from near and far every year. Every Friday in July and August you can enjoy challenging music evenings at Place Thiers. At the dance festival "Festival Cadences d´Arcachon" in September everything revolves around the movement to music.
