Famous for the quality of its surf and a great place to learn how to hit the waves with surf schools for both adults and children.
Lacanau-Océan is a laid-back seaside town smack bang on the Atlantic ocean, with long beaches and rolling surf. The town of Lacanau is about 10km inland, on the shores of a large lake, and is known for its huge range of watersports and nature activities.
In recent years Lacanau-Océan has become a buzzy summer resort, with not just hotels but four spas, as well as golf courses and holiday villages opening up. The long expanse of sand also make it a fabulous spot to do land-yachting, a popular activity along the French Atlantic coast. Another great attraction of the area is the Great Lakes of the Landes. These are a series of lakes connected by lagoons and canals making them a centre for a huge variety of water sports, as well as calm ‘beaches’.
