in the vicinity

Nestled in the south of the Landes, 30 minutes from the EUROSOL campsite ****, Soustons is a little corner of wild and preserved paradise that is a must to discover. Here, swimming, water sports, fishing, but also tree climbing and cycling are all part of a Landes holiday.

The beach of Soustons

Located between the marine lake of Port d’Albret and the pond of Pinsolles, the ocean beach of Soustons unfolds a long ribbon of fine sand and undulating dunes over nearly six kilometres.

Against the trend of the big Landes beaches, Soustons beach has chosen to “disconnect” completely during the holidays. Soustons becomes a beach without wifi, cut off from the world, from Facebook, instagram or twitter. Just you, the sea and nature! Perfect for a digital detox and swap your smartphone for a surfboard, a paddle or a good novel to read on the beach!

Lake Albret

Created in 1970 on the former bed of the Adour between Soustons and Vieux-Boucau, on the edge of the Atlantic coast, the marine lake of Port is a unique place in the Landes where it is good to relax far from the rollers of the waves. Thanks to a dam towards the ocean, the lake is kept level during low tides.

The day’s programme includes supervised swimming on the Sauvagine beach, light sailing, windsurfing, pedal boats, sailing on a miniature electric replica of real boats or cycling around the lake. During the holidays, the Fun Park Plage takes up residence on the shores of the marine lake, with inflatable games of all kinds and themed evening shows. The children have a great time!

The lake of Soustons

Straddling the communes of Soustons and Azur, in a wild and preserved setting classified Natura 2000, this 380-hectare marine lake is entirely devoted to pleasure boating. Several sporting regattas are organised each year.

The lake is not suitable for swimming, but it is possible to do accrobranche at the water’s edge. The Isle Verte sports and water sports centre offers 5 forest courses of different levels, accessible from 3 years old.

Hardy Pond and White Pond

The Hardy pond is a 42-hectare haven of nature, surrounded by forests. Biodiversity flourishes here and the waters are very rich in fish, which has attracted many fishermen. A small canal connects the Hardy pond to its larger neighbour, the Etang Blanc (183 ha). Fishing is also very popular here, as are boat trips in the company of wild ducks and in the peace and quiet.

Doing your market in Soustons

Every Monday morning, from 8am to 1pm, a large market is held on the Place des Arènes in Soustons. It is an opportunity to stock up during the holidays on local Landes specialities, crafts, manufactured products, decoration, clothing, accessories, etc.

During the summer, another market takes over the Place Robert Lassalle, every Thursday morning. On Sundays, go to the place of the marine lake of Soustons-Plage to stroll between the stalls of a small very sympathetic organic and artisanal market.

Night market lovers? Soustons proposes two very animated night markets in July and August: in the city centre every Friday evening and on the place of the marine lake on Thursdays evening (from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.).

The festivals of Soustons

During the summer, there are many things to do in Soustons. The station proposes numerous animations for young and old mixing music, traditional dance, live shows, traditional festivals and Landes good mood. Among the highlights of the Landes village, we will mention in particular the festivals of Soustons (August). The opportunity to attend the famous Landes races, novilladas and other Portuguese bullfights that have kept the Gascon culture alive for generations.
