At the gates of the Bay, Arcachon proudly displays its tradition of joy. Throughout the year, through a succession of festivals and events, Arcachon invites you to celebrate the privileged ties it has forged with the sea, arts and popular traditions. A seaside town on the edge of a protected coast line, where the light has extremely delicate nuances. Arcachon offers colours, dream villas, hotels at the edge of the water and beaches of fine sand. Over time, the town has developed its unique art of being on holiday.
