The Médoc châteaux
Lacanau, the ideal holiday destination!
Ideally situated between the Pointe de Grave and the Bassin d’Arcachon, Lacanau has become one of the most sought-after seaside resorts on the Atlantic coast. Which is hardly surprising: between pine forests, a lake set in the heart of tranquil unspoilt surroundings, sun-drenched dunes and waves worthy of the greatest surf competitions; Lacanau exudes that wonderful holiday feeling, all year long!
Only a few minutes from the Lacanau beaches, your Sandaya campsite in Aquitaine welcomes you just opposite the ocean, in a fully-equipped mobile home or on an authentic campsite pitch. So whether it’s endless bathing in the heated swimming pools of the water park, bike rides through the forest, sports lessons in the open air or learning to surf; everything is possible, nothing is ever imposed. That’s what we mean by camping inspired by freedom!
Visit Lacanau with the family
Between lake and ocean, Lacanau invites you to enjoy a stay with your toes in the water; fresh or salty, the choice is yours! After a morning spent playing in the ocean waves, you’ll adore discovering the unspoilt setting of Lacanau lake, where the kids can enjoy the calm shallow water to their hearts’ content.
Covering some 2,000 hectares, Lacanau lake offers every choice: lazing in the shade of the pines, a canoe trip to discover the Îles aux Oiseaux, trying your hand at SUP, wakeboarding or kitesurfing… Then, at the end of the day, all the family can get together at the campsite restaurant, heads filled with happy memories and eyes sparkling with stars!
Visit Lacanau as a couple
All those who love the wide open spaces can look forward to living the good life when camping at Lacanau! If you enjoy getting out and about by bike, you can rely on the impressive network of cycle tracks to follow the ocean shoreline or head deep into the heart of the forest. Whichever route you take, you’re certain to escape to a whole new world here in the sunshine of the Landes!
When it’s time to take a break, enjoy a picnic made for two at the water’s edge. Admire the surfers as they dance across the waves, outlined against the sublime colours of the setting sun. A wonderful night awaits you at the campsite, before you continue your conquest of Lacanau and its surrounding area!
