Tour of the Île aux Oiseaux

We tell you more about this excursion

Destination: At the very heart of the bay lies a wild landscape of sea and land that is a refuge for many species of birds.

Where sky and sea intermingle, admire the l’Île aux Oiseaux and the iconic silhouettes of the Cabanes Tchanquées, keeping watching over this unique place. Meander through 100 hectares of oyster farms, pass tiny oyster-farming hamlets on the water’s edge on the Cap Ferret peninsula: Piquey, Le Canon, l’Herbe, la Vigne…

End your trip with Arcachon waterfront and its ancient villas, reminders of the resort’s prestigious past. The Tour of the Ile Aux Oiseaux is a must for those who want to discover Arcachon Bay.

Our suggestion: Take a free stopover at Cap Ferret for a meal or a walk, then return on one of the shuttles offered in the afternoon. (Stopover not available during July-August)

If you want a more complete tour, take The Coastline Tour, From Island to Ocean (2.5 hour)
