Golden sand, crystal-clear water, a seabird reserve and moorings on a desert island create the unique charm of the Banc d’Arguin Nature Reserve, located at the entrance to the Arcachon Bay. Recreational boaters, oyster farmers and passing nature lovers co-inhabit and ensure the site’s preservation. The sand bank is the largest on the Gironde coast; it stretches 4 km in length and 2 km in width at low tide. As soon as you step on to it, you have the incredible sensation that you are experiencing something magical, it is, without a doubt, a very special moment. Quite heavenly!
