La Pointe from A to Z
La Pointe of Cap-Ferret is a beach with a privileged view of the Dune of Pilat. Walkers can then cross the dunes thanks to a path of nearly 6 kilometres in length. It’s an interpretive landscape trail on the topic of mobility. From North to South, walkers can discover a great photo album in the form of signposts which follow the letters of the alphabet A for “Algue” (seaweed) and Z for “Zostère” (eelgrass), to better understand the outstanding landscape surrounding them. These ABC photo boards were installed by the Conservatoire du Littoral (the coastline conservation authority).
Life in the villages/oyster ports
Grand-Piquey, Piraillan, Le Canon, and L’Herbe. Beautiful little villages hide behind each of those names, bordered with colourful wooden cabins and flower-bedecked paths and with the Bay’s blue waters as a backdrop. Each village has its own personality, history and atmosphere. But the generosity common to all of them allows them to share authentic moments with passing visitors. Stop off and taste a few oysters at an oyster farmer’s cabin in all simplicity. Many of them open their cabins for quick, unplanned tastings.
