Things you need to know about Arcachon


How about some sunshine and water sports with a side of fabulous architecture and relaxation at the seaside? Fear not, Ouibus has you covered: it’s time to pay a visit to the gorgeous seaside resort of Arcachon in the South West of France. Immerse yourself in the history of this town: explore the Ville d’Hiver, an eclectic building project that began in the 1860s. These fascinating villas are built in a variety of styles, from colonial and neoclassical to Swiss chalets and Moorish architecture. As for the Ville d’Été, this encompasses the centre of Arcachon, and you’ll find plenty of cute boutiques and restaurants among its lanes. Pop into the Château Deganne which now houses a casino, or go for a wander along the Thiers jetty. Seafood-lovers will adore the fresh oysters in the fishing district of La pointe de l’Aiguillon. Next, explore the port of Arcachon, which also offers a range of water sports such as sea kayaking, jet ski, fishing, scuba diving and more. If you’re feeling under the weather, there’s nothing better than Arcachon’s delightful microclimate to perk you up! The various spa facilities in the town offer a plethora of health and beauty treatments such as massages, facials and body scrubs. You’ll feel completely new again. In the evening, throw some shapes on the dance floor at Le Métropolitain. Alternatively check what’s on at the Zèbre café-theatre or the Theatre Olympia Arcachon and enjoy a few hours of well-deserved entertainment! Once you’re revitalised, salty and sun-kissed from the beach, it’s time to head home from Arcachon with Ouibus.
