Having a swell time in seaside Andernos-les-Bains

Within southwestern France's Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, Andernos-les-Bains is a charming seaside commune on the Atlantic coast.

Along Arcachon Bay, you'll find plenty of sandy beaches, and the area's harbors and ports offer easy access to boating excursions on the Atlantic. Andernos-les-Bains vacation rentals are a great way to see the region's highlights, and you'll be just a short trip from local sights like the Museum of the Oyster and Aqualand water park.

Stepping out(side) – outdoor fun in Andernos-les-Bains

Thanks to the mild waters of the protected Arcachon Bay, you won't have any problem finding the perfect spot for swimming, sunbathing, or whatever else it is you might want to do at the beach, and the epic Dune of Pilat – the biggest sand dune in Europe – is always worth a visit. The numerous marinas, harbors, and docks in the area offer all you'll need for a day on the waves, from kayak rentals to full-blown boat tours.

Aw, shucks – oysters and wine in Andernos-les-Bains

And with the legendary Bordeaux wine region just an hour's drive away, it would be practically criminal not to sample at least a vintage or 2. There are literally hundreds of wineries to choose from, but you can't go wrong with a trip to Chateau Pape Clement, one of the oldest (and closest) options on the list.
