Located in the commune of La Teste-de-Buch, at the entrance to the Bay of Arcachon, the resort of Pyla-sur-Mer offers its visitors a wide range of emotions and activities.
In Pyla-sur-Mer, we have the choice
Swimming in the calm waters of the Basin or heading to the ocean beaches of Petit-Nice, La Lagune and La Salie with its warf that advances more than 500 meters on the ocean, everything depends on the moment and the desire…
A must, however
The ascent of the highest dune in Europe, the Dune du Pilat (102 meters) which offers a breathtaking panorama on the whole Arcachon Basin and the Atlantic Ocean.
Nestled in the greenery of the largest forest in Europe from which emerge imposing Basque-style houses protected by maritime pines, Pyla-sur-Mer is also crossed by the GR8 which promises a beautiful walk to the heart of the forest of La Teste. Le Pyla-sur-Mer is also known as “the village under the forest”!
Not to be missed
The views of the Cap-Ferret peninsula and the Banc d’Arguin from the beach of La Corniche, towards the southern exit of Pyla.
It is in Pyla-sur-Mer, and more precisely in the ” Camping de la Dune “, renamed since then ” Les Flots Bleus ” that the films Camping 1 and 2 were shot.
