We visited the reserve this morning at about 9am and it is certainly worth the visit and going early before the cyclists and walkers descend! We parked at the marmade car park and walked in. It take a about 30 mins to actually get there and once you’re there, there are viewing platforms as well as helpful rangers. Beware though, there are no toilets or vending machines etc. You’re on your own!

If near Lacanau-Ocean, this reserve is very easy to visit even if just for a short while. It's nice to have ocean, marsh, and pine forests neighboring one another. One can see a unique part of France's southwest coast.

If you don't like nature or walking then this isn't the place for! The nature reserve is beautiful and so calm. Once inside there's a viewing platform with a warden ready to help ID any birds you don't know. Today, must be my 5th or 6th visit, all at different times of the year. So far I have seen Osprey, Hobbies, Kingfishers, Spoonbills, Black Kites, Cranes and many more. If you have them, take your binns although the warden does offer you the use of his telescope. Dogs are allowed but on a lead.
