Get around[edit]

Lovely surrondings of Arcachon becomes horrendous in July if you try to get anywhere — it takes nearly 3 hours to get from Arcachon to Andernos Le Bains in the early evenings. In fact, if you want to go anywhere in the area in summer, you'd better start early in the morning around 9AM. This is not a place for those preferring laziness in the mornings while on vacations.

The long side faces the Atlantic, and there is a small cafe on the beach. Be careful if you are barefoot or in sandals, the sand gets pretty hot in the sun.  edit
