Spring is coming to Arcachon

February is coming to an end, spring is not far away. The trees will soon begin to flower, giving off a sweet fragrance in the streets of Arcachon. For professionals, the arrival of this season also marks the start of the season. Tourism will resume, we hope, in its most beautiful colors for this new year. Spring rhymes with good weather, what are the best activities to do on site to fully enjoy it?

Spring, a season of escape in the heart of nature

Around Arcachon, there is the beach, of course, but also a huge pine forest. When you walk there, the smell of the sap, and the calm of nature invite you to a moment of relaxation and tranquility. On foot, or even by bike, it is an ideal environment to connect with nature and truly appreciate the calm of the Basin. Feet in the sand, or on the bike path, listening to the birdsong has never been so pleasant.

If you appreciate beautiful viewpoints, we can only recommend that you go to the Dune du Pilat, whose summit, at 104 meters in height, offers you a unique panorama. On one side, admire the Bassin d’Arcachon, the Banc d’Arguin, as well as the passes, which are the meeting point between the waters of the Bassin and those of the Atlantic Ocean. This meeting creates impressive currents and equally impressive waves. On the other side, find this nature with the pine forest as far as the eye can see.

In the heart of Arcachon, the Sainte-Cécile Observatory also offers you a 360° panorama of the city and the pines. Less physical than the ascent of the Dune, with its spiral staircases, this observation point is ideal for observing the landscape and the sunsets. It is located not far from the Mauresque Park, which is also in the heights of the city. A play area for children, but also with many benches and green spaces to relax and enjoy the sun.

Go on vacation before summer

The Bassin d’Arcachon is as pleasant in spring as in autumn. True, in summer it is very hot, but all families go on vacation at this time of year. The accommodation offer is then reduced, the prices higher, and enjoying a moment of relaxation is more difficult… So why not take advantage of leaving before to have the Bassin d’Arcachon all to yourself?

Hôtel Point France opens its doors in early spring until autumn. This allows all people who cannot or do not want to leave in July or August to do so at the time that suits them the most. You will therefore benefit more from the calm, enjoy splendid sunsets and beautiful walks along the beach… As well as outings and unforgettable memories in the heart of the Bassin d’Arcachon. A trip that we can only advise you to take…
