Situated in the south west of France, the town of Arcachon was once simply a part of the town of Teste-de-Buch. In 1857, following a decree from Napoléon III, Arcachon became a town in its own right. The seaside resort, which welcomes more than 90,000 summer holidaymakers each year, saw the growth in its tourism industry intensify in the 1850s. This was largely linked to the construction of the railway line linking Bordeaux and La Teste. It was also linked to the opening of thermal spas that quickly attracted a well-off clientele. Life in the town of Arcachon centres on tourism and oyster farming. So, to discover the magnificent scenery that Arcachon Bay has to offer, choose your rental boat in Arcachon.

With your rental boat at Arcachon, set sail to discover the bay’s hidden wonders. Two of the unmissable features of Arcachon Bay are the Île de Malprat and the Île aux Oiseaux (the Isle of Birds). These two sites act as a place of refuge for numerous protected animal species. As you leave the bay, you will be able to appreciate the majesty of the Dune du Pilat sand dune from the ocean. This is the most famous of France’s sand dunes and is even more impressive when viewed from the ocean. Opposite the dune you can find the equally well-known Banc d’Arguin sandbank. Be careful that the rising tide does not wreck your boat trip! A trip out to sea with your rental boat at Arcachon is also the perfect opportunity to try tubing, waterskiing, or wakeboarding.
