This beach is Europe’s tallest dune at over 100 metres. It’s an hour’s drive from Bordeaux and is
literally dazzling. You will shield your eyes as much from the shimmering heat haze as the pristine sand. After you’ve taken in the panoramic views over the Atlantic and pine forests behind, there are miles of beaches to explore along the Bassin d’Arcachon. Take a ferry from Arcachon pier to Cap Ferret for the best view of the dune. To eat, head to the oyster cabanes, where fishermen set up tables and serve oysters, prawns, paté, bread and rosé wine.
• Panorama du Pyla campsite (camping-panorama.com) has pitches from €18 a night for two, wooden bungalows for four from €30 a night
