Great view point at sunset. FAB colours.

Departure points for the sea-buses across the bay or just a stroll to enjoy the views across this gorgeous bay.

Not a long pier, but well maintained with a lot of seating and nice big platform at the end for people wanting to hang out or take pictures, etc. The whole sea side area is quite pleasant and low key, with the lovely views and an easy going vibe. It is a nice mix between commercialization and the simplicity of... More

This is one of the "attractions" in Arcachon. You can take boat cruise from here. There are often "dance show" in front of Thiers Jetty in July-August almost every night. Thiers Jetty is a row of street lamps. Nothing special. There are many seafood restaurants close and a fine beach "Arcachon plage"

My partner and I visited the town of Arcachon during the day to see the sights and go to the beach. The first place we walked to was the Jetty, as it was on the waterfront and one of the must see destinations. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high, but I was expecting something more. It's not particularly... More

In the pier, you can enjoy a great view of the sea. There are also some shops where you can order ferry tickets to the bay. And some nice restaurants near the piers. Touristy place to be!

It's actually worth going there to watch the sunset on the bay. It's nice to walk there but it's only another Pier. There is no attractions on it or food or anything.

The jetty makes and interesting walk, it's used for boarding boat trips. Good place for getting photos of the beach and town, but not worth a special visit to see on its own. Arcachon itself has many interesting houses located away from the beach. In the town the streets are narrow and there is not much parking.

This centrally located jetty is a wonderful location to take a mid afternoon cruise of Arcachon basin--about 16 euros for almost 2 hr cruise. Also shuttles to other towns.
