Réserve Ornithologique Du Teich is an absolute must visit for anyone interested in birding. The park is about a 6 km long loop (3.6 miles) that has 20 bird blinds (hides/observatories) for viewing various waterbirds that inhabit the area. The best viewing is during high...More

If you like birds, nature, wetlands or even all of these then this is a must see visit. The setting is tranquil and very few hides fail to reveal something of interest. The pathways are flat and readily walkable and there are options to meet...More

Great experience even for none bird watchers or none photographers. Long footpaths, varied habitats & plenty of hides. Seeing a dozen or so Storks nesting in the treetops was particularly impressive. The differing seasons do have an effect on what you will see though as...More

We picked a lovely autumn sunny day to visit. It is a wonderful place to view a variety of birds in their natural (and so far) unspoilt habitat. The hides are spacious and well situated. As others have suggested, going at high tide is best...More

We had a most interesting day out among peace and nature, even at the height of the August holiday season. Le Teich Parc Ornithologique is one of the most important bird sites in Europe, and despite our being there during low tide, we still saw...More

On the train line between Bordeaux and Arcachon is Le Tiech. After a 20 minutes walk you can find yourself in the peace of the estuary. Plenty of paths to walk along, loads of hides to sit and watch the different birds and just the...More

I don't think there is. We camped (in our motorhome) on the space outside reserved for camping cars and had to wait until 10am to get in. I would like to have been in around 6am but could not.
