Banc d’Arguin Day Trip

Set sail for an exceptional natural environment: the Banc d’Arguin

The Banc d’Arguin is a magnificent, golden-sand nature reserve, haven for numerous species of migratory birds.

At the heart of the reserve, oyster farmers produce some of the Bay’s best oysters, called Les Belles d’Arguin. Definitely a must-see!

Many who love this exotic island enjoy swimming and spending relaxing afternoons here.

To preserve this natural site, please exercise caution: The Banc d’Arguin is a major nesting ground for numerous bird species. Don’t forget to pack a picnic!

Departure from Cap Ferret: combine your Banc d’Arguin day with a stopover at the Dune du Pilat on the Southern Tour.
