A very beautiful place. The atmosphere is very peaceful and the scenery excellent. Well worth a visit. Also suitable for children as there is a man made beach and shallow water.

Lovely place to spend a hot summer's day. Lots of places nearby to eat and drink and plenty to do on the lake. The beach is beautiful, clean and sandy and the lake is shallow, warm and ideal for kids. Free parking too.

This fresh water lake is about 18km north to south and about 3km wide. There are sandy beaches and opportunities for sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, water skiing, swimming and fishing. A number of major sailing events take place on the lake but however many boats there are there is always room for everyone. There are also many cycle tracks in the area and some of the beaches can only be reached by boat or cycle. The lake is not far from the sea beaches for some of the best surf in Europe. The towns of Hourtin and Maubuisson have restaurants, bars and camp sites. There is a variety of holiday accommodation.
