The Bay of Arcachon
The little secrets of the Bay of Arcachon
The landscapes in the Bay of Arcachon are wonderful. From the Dune of Pilat to the tip of Cap Ferret, many nature reserves, home to many birds such as the Egrets, Cranes and Coots.
I take you along picturesque road offering natural beauty.
“Doesn’t matter the season, visitors can walk around beautiful Nature Reserves, and no matter which way you approach it. The Bay of Arcachon is always different. Gigantic dunes, edges of pine forest, islets and sandbanks, salt meadows, former salt marshes, or marshland planted with reed beds, everything contributes to multiply the landscapes, to vary the perspectives. You won’t get tired of discovering the fishing villages around the basin, of navigating along the channels towards the sand bank of Arguin or nearby the cabins on stilts on the island of the birds. How beautiful nature is”. Jean Louis Guery

The Domain of Certes and the Eyre Delta
2 ½ hours walk into the nature reserve of Certes. Here nature has taken back its rights. The landscapes are various (basins, reed beds, meadows, woods) with a beautiful view of the Bay of Arcachon.
Stop for a traditional meal at noon time. Then we set off to explore the Eyre Delta by canoe. A delta created by the Eyre river that has rust-colored water, due to the presence of Alios (iron ore). These two characteristics have given her the nickname of “The Little Amazon”.
