Our opinion on the Métro Beach

Adresse of the Métro Beach : Av Julian Grimau 40220 Tarnos

Tarnos’ Metro Beach is located north of the town. It extends to Ondres north and to the south as far as Adour (boundary between the departments of Landes and Pyrénées-Atlantiques). This large sandy beach is supervised in the summer season in the area closest to the car park. It is possible to practice the Beach-Soccer (two pitches are available). Note that naturism is tolerated on this beach but, in practice, naturists use a beach further north called la chapelle (about 1 km near the Chapel, after the bunker - however bathing is prohibited in this zone).

To get to this beach from the centre of Tarnos (away from the waterfront), take the D810 and then turn on the D81 (Avenue Lenine). The beach is about 2 km away (free parking next to it).

Taken at the main access to the Tarnos’ Metro Beach. On the right, there is a sport area to play beach-soccer (football on the beach). If you continue north towards Labenne for a little more than a kilometre, you reach a naturist area (called Chapelle Beach because there is a chapel nearby - normally naturism is tolerated on all of Metro Beach).

Going south, the beach becomes more untamed (however swimming is not recommended outside the supervised area). We begin to see the breakwater of Anglet where we will find the Barre Beach (with its tourist complex).
