About La Teste-de-Buch

Set on the Atlantic Ocean, La Teste-de-Buch promises sand, sunshine and beautiful coastal scenery. The laid-back seaside commune is set at the foot of an enormous sand dune and is famous for beaches and birdwatching.

Things to do

Whether you’re looking to surf, sunbathe or build sandcastles, you’ll find beaches for every occasion in La Teste-de-Buch. La Corniche is one of four lifeguard-patrolled beaches, while La Lagune is a popular clothing-optional stretch of sand. Rolling waves make La Salie Nord the best beach for surfing.

Grande Dune du Pilat towers over the coastline and is one of the tallest sand dunes in Europe. More than one million visitors per year visit the 106-metre tall dune to take in sweeping views over the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding pine forest.

Marooned in Arcachon Bay, Ile aux Oiseaux is a pristine island home to more than 150 species of birds. Guided boat tours depart from Arcachon and whisk you to Ile aux Oiseaux, where you can spot thousands of nesting birds. You’ll also get to see the famous wooden stilt houses that dot the bay.
