The best way to understand the Bay of Arcachon is definitely to fly over it. Obviously this is not the most economic activity but if you really want to treat yourself, book a flight over the Bay of Arcachon, certainly one of the best to do in Europe! The bird island, the Dune du Pilat, Cap Ferret, the lighthouse, the fishing villages, Arcachon, magnificent villas, oyster beds... the Bay of Arcachon will have no secrets for you after this.
For this very nice activity, there is only one address: the aerodrome of Test Buch where the bravest can book a parachute jump! The pilots are very experienced and will put you at ease; the airport with its beautiful new control tower is run by enthusiasts and professionals who have the best equipment. The price is 75 euros per person (30 minutes flight).
