Vieux-Boucau-les-Bains, meaning “old mouth”, is a lively coastal town brimming with charm located on the Côte d'Argent which wasonce a commercial hub for pine wood, pine resin and “vin de sable”. Today, Vieux-Boucau owes its character and heritage to a blend of Basque and Landes culture, such as the Joseph Laudouat arenas and the Fronton, a mecca for Basque pelota tournaments and traditional dance shows.
A few suggestions of things to do during your visit to Vieux-Boucau-les-Bains : walking in the dunes, building sandcastles on the beach, swimming in the ocean (lifeguarded) and for the more intrepid, surfing the waves.
Sheltered from the waves and hustle and bustle of the beach, Port Albret marine lake is a haven of peace for both holidaymakers and birds. You can explore this wooded environment in a boat, pedalo or canoe. Come and recharge your batteries at Vieux-Boucau, 20 minutes from our campsite.
