Incredible surf school, with the nicest instructors and the warmest welcome in a very cozy place where you can see all of Adrian's (and maybe others') surf trophies.

Requested a mountain bike to tour the dune area with all afternoon. I had a water bottle with me (it was going to be a hot day) but there was no bike with a bottle holder. Even though I didn't even explicitly ask, the nice employee grabbed his screw driver and mounted a bottle holder onto the bike on the spot. How's that for service?
Bike turned out to be of good quality, tires were pumped up to the right level and also have I never had even the slightest problem when switching gears. (Which I normally do with rental bikes because the dune area is quite demanding on this part.)
Prices are very reasonable. You can rent a helmet for free, and they have good maps of the area. One minor issue: I had to leave my driver's licence there as a deposit (not a problem in my case since I only rented the bike for the afternoon).
Be sure to take a ride in the dune area and you'll have a wonderful, sportive time!

Tengo Frio Surfschool

Reviewed By mattyandco - Hartlepool, United Kingdom

I booked surf lessons here for my sons (both of whom have surfed before) during a short visit to Lacanau. The lesson was intended to be more advanced than a beginners lesson. However we felt that the class size was too big to allow much individual focus. There was one instructor for a group of 8-10 young people, all of whom had obviously surfed before. However our younger son (aged 12) struggled to get out through the surf, which is more powerful in Lacanau tan where he usually surfs in the UK, he became quite upset and No assistance or advice was offered to him. Our older son enjoyed the Surfing, but I am not sure what he gained from the lessons other than the safety of having the instructor around. Both boys agreed that the school we used the previous year was preferable.

Le Peuple des Cimes

Reviewed By grainsmaker - Dublin, Ireland

We visited here on a very hot (39 degrees C) afternoon with our 3 children (16, 14 and 9). It was quiet and well shaded and ideal as an activity for 2 hours before or after the nearby beach at Le Porge. There are three levels of difficulty/height and the kids have to clip on and off at each junction. This was a small concern at the start but the kids soon got the hang of it and soon they were riding the bicyles, surfboards and having great fun on the numerous zip lines that run between the trees. There are no facilities here other than a small shack from where they operate and sell drinks. All in all a great activity for kids of all ages.

Reserve Naturelle de l'Etang de Cousseau

Reviewed By auntieshaz21 - Lanton, France

If you don't like nature or walking then this isn't the place for! The nature reserve is beautiful and so calm. Once inside there's a viewing platform with a warden ready to help ID any birds you don't know. Today, must be my 5th or 6th visit, all at different times of the year. So far I have seen Osprey, Hobbies, Kingfishers, Spoonbills, Black Kites, Cranes and many more. If you have them, take your binns although the warden does offer you the use of his telescope. Dogs are allowed but on a lead.

Golf et Mini Golf UCPA du Baganais

Reviewed By Nipa27 - Brussels, Belgium

I had my beginners lessons there and was satisfied. The location is fantastic, beautiful surroundings and prices are reasonable. UCPA manages the place and a hotel nearby, which is more like a youth hostel for people up to 35 years. You can get good value for money if you book the hotel with half day or full day golf together via ucpa.com, where 1 week holidays with golf lessons and full board cost approx. 600 euro. Lacanau is windy but also sunny, it's possible to golf there until November but I'd recommend to go there during summer to enjoy the beach at the same time.

Aqua Detente

Reviewed By tirap - Bordeaux, France

Me voilà de retours à aquadetente Le Porge.En effet par rapport à quelques derniers avis que j'ai pu lire, il y a eu du changement, à commencer par la gérante,qui est beaucoup plus accueillante,que la précédente,des petits changements à l'intérieur avec des petites décorations, une machine à café, une nouvelle douche et enfin des Vestiaires qui manquaient ! Sinon le lieu reste inchangé, toujours un espace de détente avec une piscine, un jaccuzi, un sauna,et un hammam.
Et la plage horaire pour les Reservations est beaucoup plus large,si j'ai bien compris on peut réserver jusqu'à 23h00!

Cafe-Theatre de Carcans

Reviewed By Jean Louis G - canejan

Déjà la façade interpelle quand vous allez de Bordeaux à Hourtin. Franchissez dons la porte: la salle décorée avec goût dans les rouge et gris est magnifique.
LA collation d'avant spectacle est également à ne pas bouder: du frais bien fait, ce qu'il faut pour pouvoir apprécier le spectacle sans avoir le ventre vide mais sans non plus s'assoupir.
Je suis allé voir la Cerise sur le gâteux c'était juste magnifique: le texte d'Antoine Beauville que j'avais déjà eu la chance d'applaudir dans la Biscotte il y a quelques années est très juste et vous fait pleurer... de rire. Les deux autres comédiens se sont également parfaitement mis à la hauteur de la pièce et ils jouent particulièrement juste. La pétulance de Laurence Ruatti et la profonde drôlerie de Xavier Guibert accessoirement fondateur du lieu servent merveilleusement le texte. Le côté chaleureux et convivial de l'endroit vous permet d'ailleurs d'échanger avec les acteurs ensuite. Bref vous aurez compris que j'ai bien l'intention de revenir et faire découvrir cet endroit magnifique au cœur du Médoc... Il y avait un manque certain, Nathalie Sarthe et Xavier Guibert ont eu le bon goût de le combler. Merci
