Your fully equipped holiday rentals in Vieux-Boucau
The smallest seaside resort in Landes, in union with nature
The first thing you notice when you set down your suitcases in Vieux-Boucau-les-Bains is the gigantic seawater lake bordering its town centre. Port d’Albret lake is a salt lake accessible directly from the town centre. To get there, just follow the ‘Mail’ (a paved path running alongside the resort’s many restaurants). Vieux-Boucau lake also allows swimming from its charming supervised beach.
Those who prefer ocean waves and sand dunes will be able to enjoy the municipality’s 2 other supervised beaches: Les Sablères north beach and the Central Beach. Both beaches are accessible on foot, by bike or car and allow dogs outside supervised hours. Take advantage of the magnificent wooden pontoon that invites you to stroll along the lake to the estuary and admire beautiful contemporary sculptures. Arriving at the Central Beach, you can enjoy a cool drink with friends while admiring the ocean.
Are you going to the Landes for a family holiday? Your children will be delighted to find an inflatable structure in the town centre, set up in front of the marine lake. After a short play session, you can all move closer to the rocky shores to spot the many crabs that wander there.
