By its central position, you will be half-way (about thirty km) of the presqu’ile du Cap Ferret and the ocean beaches, and the dune du Pyla, the largest dune in Europe and its heavenly surroundings (Banc d’Arguin). there are many walks and maritime shuttles, which allowed you to go in particular, to the Banc d’Arguin, to the l’Ile aux oiseaux, or go round the « cabins tchanquées » (2 huts on stilts at the heart of the water).
