If Gastes makes such a delightful spot for a lovers tryst, it’s no doubt because of the diversity of its landscapes, a natural invitation for a romantic outing à deux! Between the lakes, forest and ocean, the routes are innumerable and all lead far away from the everyday! Leave your car at the campsite and set off on the Vélodyssée, the longest cycle track in Europe, as it crosses through Gastes. To the north, Biscarrosse is waiting to recount the fascinating history of French seaplane aviation, an adventure born here in the heart of the Landes. To the south, Mimizan beckons for a surfing lesson on a beach that stretches as far as the eye can see.
On your return to Gastes, make a little detour to visit the harbour, where the multicoloured and often centuries-old boathouses never fail to catch the eye. The perfect setting for a delightful souvenir photo!
