Popular with surfers from all over the world, Lacanau-Ocean hosts every year in August one of the major stages of the world surfing championship, the ” Lacanau Pro “. It is the oldest surfing competition in France (1979).
There are 7 surf clubs in the resort: surfing is considered a religion here!
Lacanau-Ocean is also a network of bicycle and pedestrian paths. And only 6 km from the resort, the Lacanau lake is both a peaceful place for swimming and fishing, as well as one of the training sites of the French water skiing team. Its south-western bank shelters a broad marked out path, at the beginning of Longarisse, winding between reeds, water lilies and wooded dunes. The GR 8 also skirts the lake and allows to join, by the forest, either the station of Lacanau-océan, or Lège-Cap-Ferret (16 km). Kayakers can also reach the Bassin d’Arcachon through the Porge channel, south of the lake.
The beaches North Ocean, Central Ocean, South Ocean, Supersud Ocean, Le Moutchic and La Grande Escoure have been awarded the Blue Flag label 2010.
