“Very Chic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Arcachon has an upmarket feel with this pier at the centre of the promenade. I was very impressed with the place but only stopped one night on way to Biarritz. Just one of many fantastic places in France just a bit sad so many of my fellow Brits miss France for Spain !

“See and be seen.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

The center of tourism and locals alike, situated on the main newly renovated promenade, the jetty more often than not has some sort of seasonal attraction for tourism, displays & carnival activities are common, leading out in each direction from the jetty is a plethora of superb restaurants serving fantastic 'fruit de mer' dishes, cafes and sandwich or fast-food establishments, there is something here for everyone. Take a while sit and enjoy and literally watch the world go by.
Check out the whale tail, it changes colour each year.

“Must do promenade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Lovely promenade at any time of day, watch the people, take your scooter or skateboard and have a go on the carousel and an ice cream. Like a very up market sea side experience

“Disgusting Customer Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I would advise that you do not ever use the UBA ferries. We bought tickets to do the l'ile aux Oiseax trip.
Wind came up, the boat was tiny. Looked totally inappropriate, as stated by another friend who was a boat captain.
So we asked for a refund. Everyone rude and nasty about our request.
Quite shocked at this kind of attitude.

“The real Town Centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The Thiers Jetty is the hub. The view over the bay is fantastic and the jetty with its piazza is the place to people-watch.
