4.5 22 Reviews | Add your review

One of the closest coastal resorts to UNESCO–listed Bordeaux, the lively beach town of Arcachon is famous for its plump, fresh Pacific oysters. Here are a few ways to explore the sun-drenched shores of the Côte d’Argent and savor the seafood flavors the locals love.
 
Highlights
  • Visit one of the 350 local oyster farms (the oldest of which dates back to 1849), and sample fresh oysters accompanied by delicate French white wines.
  • Learn how oysters have been cultivated and harvested for centuries at the Oyster House in Larros port.
  • Work up an appetite with a hike to the top of Pyla Dune—the highest sand dune in France—and admire sweeping views over the Atlantic Ocean, the Bay of Arcachon, and the Landes forest.
  • Combine an oyster-tasting trip to Arcachon Bay with a wine-tasting tour of the Médoc region, and visit a château where Bordeaux wine is made.
  • The region’s oyster-farming villages host a number of summer oyster festivals when oyster stalls line the sidewalks and seafront restaurants serve up huge bowls of oysters, accompanied by a fine selection of Bordeaux’s white wines.
