Our opinion on the Central Beach

Adresse of the Central Beach : Bd de la Plage 33680 Lacanau

Central Beach in Lacanau is located downtown near the shops and restaurants. This long sand beach extends between Sud and Nord beaches. To get to this beach, you won't need to cross tall dunes. We arrive directly from the summit where there are several parking lots (paid parking in season) and stairs that lead to the beach. Be careful, the beach becomes almost nonexistent at high tide. Near downtown there are several shops and restaurants. Going more toward the north is a surf center and skate park.
