Enjoy the overwhelming magic of this great site.


Your first surprise will be the sheer scale of the Dune (110 m high, 2.7 km long and 60 million m3 of fine sand). And don’t expect to be alone!


Take a deep breath and begin your climb, either up the steps or straight up the sandy slope.

When you reach the top, you will be richly rewarded for your effort: the panoramic view over the Bay, encompassing the Banc d’Arguin sandbank, the pine forest and the Cap-Ferret lighthouse, is truly exceptional…

The Dune has been a listed site since 1994 so its special atmosphere will be sure to remain unchanged the next time you come.
