Arcachon is a beautiful city but if you want to discover the diversity of the bay and appreciate the quality of life even more, take a boat and cross the Bay of Arcachon to reach the Cap Ferret.
Crossings are organized throughout the day and you can explore the Cap on foot or by bike as many rental shops await you on the Cap Ferret. Go early in the morning to enjoy a full day there and watch the scenery change with the tides.
During your visit to Cap Ferret you can visit the lighthouse and admire the magnificent view over the Bay of Arcachon; take a swim at the tip of Cap Ferret and enjoy the beautiful view of the Dune du Pilat; cycle in the forest and discover the fishing villages such as the village of L'Herbe and its lavish Moorish chapel. Cap Ferret is relaxing and lively with many shops and restaurants of the highest quality. We recommend that you take a tour during your visit to the Bassin d'Arcachon.
