Landes tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do
Landes

Two main features distinguish the Landes. The long stretch of coast and shifting sand dunes, and the vast pine forests planted to stabilise the sand dunes.

It is from these two features that the Landes derives its wealth - tourism, to the coastal resorts in the summer months, and sales of pinewood and its derivatives.

Renowned for its hot springs & thermal spas, Dax has been a popular centre, with hot mud serving to soothe ailments, since Roman times.

Coastal resorts such as Hossegor and Capbreton are noteworthy, with surf enthusiasts travelling from all over Europe to catch the Atlantic waves. Inland, boat trips and fishing are available.
