brings visitors to the region in the heart of calming nature, where the waves of the Atlantic Ocean kiss wonderful beaches and the soothing aroma of fragrant pine trees fills the air. Wake up early and embrace the chance to explore an outdoor playground paradise.
In the north of the department, the popular banks of Lake Biscarrosse offer campers with an endless choice of al fresco activities. On the lake, visitors can enjoy kayaking, swimming and stand-up paddle boarding, while the shaded woodland of the area is ideal for peaceful walks and charming cycling trips
At the nearby beach, a whole host of water sports are available, and the chance for kids to find their feet on a surfboard. Young campers will love the giant inflatable on the lake at AquaPark Biscarrosse or the treetop fun at Bisc’Aventure. Much of the same pursuits can be found at nearby Lake Sanguinet, where visitors can experience brilliant aqua activities including parasailing, yachting, trout fishing, kite surfing, aqua biking and so much more.
If you decide to stay at one of our resorts near Mimizan, you can explore the shores of Lake Aureilhan or enjoy blissful beach days on the sands of Plage de l'Espécier and Plage de Contis. The blossoming beauty of La Promenade Fleurie is a great place to stroll and appreciate over 300 species of flowers, trees and shrubs.
We have several campsites in between Messanges and Ondres, giving holidaymakers easy access to the vibrant seaside resorts of Seignosse, Hossegor and Capbreton. The area around these towns are marked by fantastic golden sand beaches and yet more stunning lakes.
There’s plenty for the kids to do here as well, with the water slides and swimming pools of Seignosse Atlantic Park proving popular with youngsters. Sunny days by the sea can be best enjoyed at Plage des Estagnots, Plage du Penon and Plage Centrale, while a visit to La Graviere rewards campers with a chance to marvel at professional surfers hanging ten on massive waves.
One of the highlights of a stay in Landes is taking a peaceful boat trip down the Courant d’Huchet River, which calmly floats from Lake Leon to the Atlantic Ocean, passing beautiful scenery as it goes. The wetlands of Orx provides a great place to enjoy the wildlife of the area.
A stay at one of our campsites in the south of Landes places you within easy reach of Biarritz, an elegant seaside town in Pyrénées-Atlantiques. Top tourist attractions include the Biarritz Aquarium, the City Ocean Museum and Rocher de la Vierge.
