Dune de Pyla

Explore the highest dune of Europe near the Bassin d’Arcachon. The Dune de Pyla stretches over 616 meters from east to west.

107 meters tall, 2700 meters long, 500 meters wide and 60 million cubic meter sand, all these things make the Dune du Pilat a natural wonder. It is definitely worth climbing the dune (there is no other way to reach the top) because from the top you have a stunning view of the Bassin d’Arcachon, the Atlantic Ocean, the tip of Cap Ferret and the vast pine forests.
Tip : Visit at the end of the day and enjoy a romantic sunset from the top of the dune.
