16 km trekking path

Take on the coastal path and admire the wildlife to be found in the heart of the Cœur du Bassin d’Arcachon. Connecting 6 ports and 3 beaches, it runs along the region’s maritime facade.

From the beautiful villas of Taussat-Les-Bains in the north, to the port of Biganos in the south, it’s transformed, for those who so wish, into a secondary route to Santiago de Compostela. All along the trail, open your eyes and enjoy a setting that alternates remarkable architectural heritage and memorable natural sites.

Domaine de Certes et Graveyron

The green lung of the Cœur du Bassin, it was shaped by man to suit the economic activity of the region before becoming a Sensitive Natural Area. Belonging to the Conservatoire du Littoral, it’s managed by the Departmental Council, which offers free tours, accompanied by a naturalist guide.

On foot, follow the song of birds hidden in the hedges, marvel at the flight of migrants and contemplate a landscape that intertwines between land and water.

The road to Santiago de Compostela

The Cœur du Bassin is crossed by a secondary route to Santiago de Compostela. The English way, as it’s called, is mainly taken by pilgrims from northern Europe. From Lanton to Teich, with a 12th-century church, priory and miraculous fountain, follow in the footsteps of Saint James of Compostela along cycle paths and small marked country roads.
