TOP 5 water activities and beach games to try this summer!

With more than 100 km of beaches, the Landes is the ideal destination to try new activities by the sea. From beach-rugby to Mölkky and Hawaiian canoeing, here are five sports and leisure activities that will be a hit on the Landes beaches this summer!

TOP 5 des activités nautiques et jeux de plage à tester cet été !



A growing discipline, beach rugby is very popular in the Landes and brings together licensees and neophytes, summer visitors and oval supporters. The rules are simple: five against five, no scrum or tackle (replaced by touch). To stop the ball carrier, all an opponent has to do is touch him with both hands on any part of the body below the shoulders. Everyone can try it!

  • See you on the beach of the Vieux-Boucau pier every Saturday in July and August: discovery sessions and tournaments with prizes to be won (free, registration on site). Other beach sports to discover all summer: spike-ball and beach-volley!


For a change from the usual games of rackets on the beach, discover mölkky, a bowling game from Finland. It was one of the favorite beach games of vacationers last summer and it is likely to be again this season. The object of the game is to knock down 12 pins (numbered from 1 to 12) with a stick, called a bowler. The winner is the first person to score 50 points. A trendy beach game that doesn't take up much space and is easy to slip into your suitcase! You can play it anywhere, not just on the beach.


The Hawaiian canoe

After the arrival of surfing in Hossegor in the 1950s, the Landes coast has been welcoming another sport from the Pacific for a few years now: the Hawaiian canoe. Inspired by the traditional boats of the Polynesian islands, the Hawaiian canoe (also called va'a) is light and easy to handle. The stability of the pirogue is ensured by a unique outrigger connected to the hull by two arms. This sport is fun and accessible to all and lends itself to quiet family outings as well as to surfing sessions on the Landes waves.

  • Where to practice the Hawaiian pirogue near the campsite : the lake of Léon (2 hour trip supervised by an instructor), more information on www.canoe-surfing.fr

The longe-côte

Longe-côte, or aquatic hiking, is becoming more and more popular. Practiced in groups all year round, as a leisure activity or for sports training, this nautical activity consists of walking along the beach with a water height between the navel and the armpits, sometimes with the help of a paddle. The resistance of the water allows to work the cardio and the muscular reinforcement, without risk for the articulations.

In Landes, longe-côte is very popular on the beaches of Moliets, Soustons, Vieux-Boucau or Messanges. More information HERE. Equipment to foresee: a neoprene suit and sailing or diving shoes (loan of the material possible).

The stand-up paddle

Is it still necessary to present it? For a few years now, stand-up paddling has become the most popular discipline on the beaches and lakes of the Landes. This popularity has only increased since the arrival of inflatable boards on the market. The practice of paddle (SUP for the initiated) is quite simple and is for everyone. Those who are used to board sports can rent the equipment directly and jump into the water. For the novices, a small initiation session is necessary with to acquire the technical bases: balance, direction and propulsion.

  • Where to go stand up paddling in the Landes ? A few steps away from the EUROSOL campsite, you can go to the beach of Vielle or the northern banks of the Léon lake.
