Sunset at Pereire / Low tide

THE place in Arcachon for dreamers and romantics!

Doesn’t nature do things well?  In Arcachon, there is a place which, due to its geographical location and its natural beauty, offers a taste of paradise to locals and visitors: Pereire Beach.

The extensive white sand beach, at the edge of the pine forest, is next to the Spring Town, and stretches over three kilometres of sea front. It offers an outstanding view of the Cap Ferret Peninsula. Throughout the day, it’s pleasing to contemplate the splendour of this family-friendly beach where it’s nice to spend restful and relaxing moments!

At the end of the afternoon, Pereire becomes all the more magical as it attracts nature lovers coming to see an impressive (and free!) spectacle: the sunset.

Between magical colours and the poetry of the moment, the sunset at Pereire Beach resembles no other.  It’s most striking and impressive at low tide, especially when the sky is transformed into a myriad of mauves, oranges, golds and pinks before it dives into the ocean behind the Cap Ferret peninsula making room for a sparkle of stars.  A few moving minutes of pure happiness for the eyes, a time for dreams and escape.

With the family, as a couple or with friends, the sunset at Pereire will remain without a doubt an unforgettable souvenir of your holiday in Arcachon.
