The water in the lagoon is always 4-5 degrees warmer than in the ocean, so beaches, natural parks, thalassotherapy, and water sports attract tourists to these places. The first thing that tourists do upon arrival at these places is rent a yacht in Liege-Cap-Ferret, since without it, the rest will be limited to the nearest beach and walks near the residence. It is better to rent a yacht with a local skipper, as the lagoon is influenced by the stormy Bay of Biscay and the spits and shoals often change their location after autumn and winter storms.

A yacht rented in Liège-Cap-Ferret allows you to visit Bird Island in the middle of the lagoon - there are oyster farms and "houses on stilts" - and a dozen beaches inside the lagoon, for example, the shallow sandy La Pointe aux Chevaux, Truc Vert, du Phare ideal for families with children, but with a modest infrastructure. It is better to go to the ocean beaches on foot - the width of the peninsula from the traverse of Bird Island to the cape does not exceed 300-400 meters, but it should be remembered that the water in the Bay of Biscay is colder than in the lagoon, there is almost always a strong surf and the beaches have no infrastructure, therefore it is necessary be careful. For families with children, it is better to choose one of the many beaches of the lagoon.
