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

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

Just a short walk from the Arcachon Plaza hotel. Boat trips available to Cap Ferrat and the bird santuary.

I have learned about Arcachon in TA as I was planning our trip to Bordeaux. I am glad I devoted a day in our itinerary to Arcachon. It is a beautiful place, very relaxing and just absolutely wonderful. Arcachon is only 55 minutes by train from Bordeaux and it is a perfect day trip which you can combine in visiting the Dune du Pyla which is about 45 minutes bus ride from Arcachon. The bus going to Dune du Pyla is just infront of the train station, bus nr. 1.

From the train station, it is easy to be attracted towards the direction of the sea. We did not even go to the tourist office. We just walked to the direction of the sea. Along the way, you could see many beautiful houses of special design. On your way, you would see a huge castle which is the casino of the town.

At the seafront you would see this port and the whole beach front is just so beautiful and relaxing. You can stroll the whole stretch of the beachfront which is called the Plage d'Arcachon. There are many restaurants to choose from. The question is if you can get a table since it was full of people. The sun was shining and many people were sun-bathing. Only a few were swimming. It was really worth visiting Arcachon. The train is very regular going back to Bordeaux. You just take note of the last trip back to Bordeaux. Actually I suggest to stay overnight here or more especially in the summer.
