Arcachon Tourist Office

ArcachonArcachon Tourist Office (Office de tourisme d'Arcachon) is located at Espanade Georges Pompidou, 33120 Arcachon. They organise walks on the forest rambling paths to discover the forest scent of the pine trees and to enjoy the story of the pine resin from April to October for 8€ (adults) and 6€ (children). They invite you to see the Arcachon fish market auction sale and get to know the different types of fish (Bass, Mullet, Sole) and it just depends on the season …a remarkable discovery with a guide who is an Arcachon ‘fishing epic buff' for 6 € (adults) and 4 € (children).
Facing the inner bay, the Aiguillon district of Arcachon is marked by its maritime vocation. When sailors from Brittany came to settle at the Aiguillon headland, the Saint Elme School of Arcachon trained future skippers, and the port of Arcachon was established. A retrospective cycle ride is organized by Arcachon Tourist Office: starting at the origin of Arcachon, and finishing at the fishing port and marina of today…with a port of call in a oyster cabin to taste one or two oysters. The length is 4 km and the cost, including bicycle rent, is 14 € (adults) and 10 € (children).
