Visit La Teste-de-Buch during his holidays
From our campsite in Arcachon, you will be ideally located to discover La Teste de Buch, Gironde.
With an area of 180 km2, La Teste-de-Buch is one of the largest municipalities in France. Located in the heart of the Landes de Gascogne, south of the Arcachon basin and close to the dune of Pyla, between forest and ocean, La Teste enjoys a privileged location. It has a pretty parish church, the church of St. Vincent, and some other beautiful buildings like the house of Verthamon (Hotel de Caupos) and Lalanne House which now houses the library. La Teste is especially famous for its beautiful sandy beaches, including the beach of Salie, renowned surf spot of the Atlantic coast. It conquers nature lovers because it is surrounded by exceptional natural areas: Bird Island, Pyla dune, Lake Cazaux and Sanguinet, National Park Banc d’Arguin …
As in most municipalities in the Arcachon basin, oyster farming plays an important role in the local economy. The Teste has the distinction of having three oyster ports. Although the port is especially busy in December, when the demand for oysters near the end of the year peaks, it is possible to go all year round to meet some 600 oyster farmers in activity on the basin.
You will understand, La Teste de Buch is one of the essential steps of your next vacation in Gironde, near the Bassin d’Arcachon.
