The Bay of Arcachon is a geomorphologic curiosity: a bay of 1500 hectares fed both by the ocean and a large number of waterways, producing an inland sea with the colours of a lagoon, bordered on one side by a blond crown of fine sand culminating at 104 metres: the Dune du Pilat. From its summit you can also see the beautiful Landes forest. The Bay of Arcachon is also home to the eponymous town and its famous winter district. The site of the first ever healthcare holidays, Arcachon later became – when it was officially founded on 2 May 1857 – a luxury resort where Spanish royalty, Russian dukes, and all sorts of artists came to stay…
