An exceptional view from the Arcachon Bay and the Atlantic Ocean between the Banc d’Arguin and the Dune du Pyla.

You will navigate in stand up paddle at the foot of the highest sand dune in Europe and close to the enigmatic Banc d’Arguin .

If we start to slack low tide, we start from the Corniche before low tide , the current thus leads us to the foot of the Dune du Pyla. When the tide goes it brings us back to the starting point .

If we start to slack high tide, we assume Nice little before high tide , the current thus leads us to the foot of the Dune du Pyla. When the tide goes down it goes back to the starting point.

This part of the Pays de Buch is sensitive to marine elements ( wind, currents, tides, waves) , so it is important to start with good timing and good company .
