We used UBA today from the Dune du Pyla to Cap Ferret. You have to park on Biscarrosse road and walk along a path before you arrive on Robinson beach. The crossing takes 45 minutes and gives you the opportunity to see the massive dune...More

One of the things that I like about France is that its seaside towns still offer the sort of simple pleasures that have almost disappeared in England. In this case a straightforward trip of two and three-quarter hours round Arcachon bay with no stops except...More

At least not the way we understand it: it does not take cars, only passengers, and not many, mind you. The trip to Cap Ferret is half an hour, there was nothing spectacular in the views from it: ugly circa 1960s buildings on the cost,...More

Don't underappreciate how much driving it would take to get from Arcachon to other cities in the Bay. You'll be glad you looked at options at Union des Bateliers Arcachonnais. They got us to Cap Ferret in grand style at a very reasonable price. The...More

We booked the Grand Tour around the bay. The boat took us a full circle around the bay. The boat itself was tired and equipment was rather dated. The tour did not offer any on board commentary in English, so we were left alone to...More
