Discover activities around Biscarrosse and the Landes gastronomy
Holidays are also an opportunity to discover activities. Known for having one of the best surfing spots in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Bisca Grands Lacs also offers boaters the joys of paddling, sand-yachting or water skiing. Those who love walking in the great outdoors will delight in the walks or horseback riding along the shores of Sanguinet lake or in the heart of the Landes de Gascogne. For cycling enthusiasts, the Vélodyssée route with its bike paths is ideal for visiting Pilat dune or the oyster ports of Arcachon Bay.
As the capital of seaplanes, Biscarrosse proposes first flights as well as flying courses for beginners and experienced pilots. Many activities are proposed for all ages and all the family. When staying in Gastes or Parentis en Born, discovering the Landes area is a chance to taste the local cuisine. The region’s restaurants cook delicious savoury dishes and sweet specialities, particularly the Landes garbure soup, duck breast, as well as the famous dessert speciality, the pastis landais cake.
A holiday spot to recharge your batteries fully
With its outstanding view over the Atlantic coast, Biscarrosse offers a relaxing stay in the Landes department. Many outings let you enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, with the ocean beach and its unforgettable sunsets. The seaside resort south of Arcachon Bay features six destinations of outstanding diversity.
