Discover the Arcachon Basin... And the seaside
At law tide … shore fishing
With a net and a bucket, let’s go to explore the marine environment of the Bay.
You can shore fishing everywhere in the Bay, except inthe oysters parks. You can fish for al eatble species, except wild oysters.
Respect official minimal sizes :
Clams and Mussels : 4cm
Cockles : 3cm
Razor shells : 10cm
Too small shells must be thrown back into the sea
Before going shore fishing, check the tides timetable. Go back to the beach, 1 hour after law tide.
Stay on the sandy areas or follow the Esteys because the bottom of the Bay is very muddy.
Every 6 hours, it changes !
Law tide, the water recedes entirely : perfect for shore fishing
High tide, the water is back, you can swim before the water receds again !
At high tide … Swimming, water sport or lazing
Enjoy the beach of the Bay of Arcachon in front of the camping or on the Betey beach
If you want to swim regardless the tides, you can find 2 bathing spots next to the camping :
Spot in Lanton (behind Intermarché) : lifeguard beach in July and August
