18km of cycle paths in the middle of the forest! The lion loop is very easy and gives you the opportunity to go on a nice family bike ride! In the heart of the pine forest, this wide track is easy to do with children in a cart, cycling apprentices or even champions!
Treat yourself to a swimming break in Lake Lacanau, at the Grande Escoure, at the sailing club.
Do not hesitate to put the bikes at the level of the Lion forest house, you can discover the beauty of the coast by crossing the dune.
