Lacanau Ocean town guide
Lacanau Ocean is a holiday village close to village of Lacanau which is a couple of kilometres inland. Visitors by hire car will find the resort about fifty five kilometres west of Bordeaux, in the heart of the Gironde. This is the area of large inland lakes which are linked together by slow moving streams and rivers.
It is likely that if you have heard of Lacanau Ocean before, that you are a surfer as there are several world class surfing events that take place there each year. This does not mean that it is not suitable for beginners or novices at the sport as there is an active surf club and adjoining school. The off shoots such as kite surfing are also popular at Lacanau Ocean.
The whole area has become popular with sports enthusiasts with everything from golf to horse riding available at the end of a short ride in the hire car. If you are not sports minded or if some of your group prefer more cerebral activities, the country side and the coastline are renowned for their beauty and one is only an hour or so from the sophisticated city of Bordeaux.
