With its 6,600 hectares, the lake of Carcans-Hourtin is the largest natural freshwater lake in France.
Ideal for learning to sail, this lake saw the birth of the Olympic dinghies in the 60s, the famous 420 and 470. It is also popular with families for safe swimming.
Its particularly preserved natural environment with its wild marshes, its white sand dunes and its forest gives it a certain charm, to discover during a walk or a mountain bike ride.
On the right bank of the lake, the sports and leisure area of Bombannes offers tennis, kayaking, archery, climbing and surfing courses as well as the rental of sailboats and windsurfers.
