In addition, diverse activities are on offer, like trout fishing, pond fish fishing and even pony rides.
And to delve further into "the secrets of the forest", the fun and educational theme park awaits families.
Arcachon beach extends over 800 m along a waterfront promenade facing the Atlantic Ocean. Located very close to the Arcachon city centre, this beach has been very popular since the 19th century.
Swimming, sunbathing, sand castle contests, beach volleyball players and passionate idylls are the features of this finely sanded beach with its scattering of small blue and white cabins.
A decree dating back to 1289 allowing the running of oxen, cows and bulls through the streets of Bayonne is still in place today. It's the oldest written reference to bull running in the world!
Years later, in 1757, the city thought it prudent to fence off the bullfighting. The idea ofarenas was also starting to take shape. The building that is open to visitors today was inaugurated in 1893. With 10 000 seats, it's one of the largest arenas in the South West.
This neo-Moorish style building is now an integral part of Bayonne's heritage.
In the 18th century the running of the bulls was authorised in Dax but it had to take place in an "enclosed space behind barriers". The arena, in the grounds of the former Cordeliers Convent, was in the shape of a horseshoe. The current arena, built from cement, was inaugurated by the Mayor in 1913. Expanded during the 20th century, the arena can now accommodate up to 8,000 spectators. Restored in 2003, the arena is currently looking better than ever.
