Our opinion on the Petit-Nice Beach

Adresse of the Petit-Nice Beach : Rte d'Arcachon à Biscarrosse 33115 Pyla sur Mer

Petit-Nice Beach in Pyla sur Mer is located on the route de Biscarrosee in the forest La Teste. This large sand beach is far from the city and south of the Dunes du Pilat and Gaillouneys facing the Banc d'Arguin. The edges of the beach are landscaped. We find several restaurants and snack bars here, a picnic area, a few kids' games and a large free parking lot in the forest. This beach is accessible across the dune by duckboard paths making it handicap accessible. Note that this beach has a first-aid station open in the summer. However, due to erosion, the available space on the beach is lessening. The locals prefer the neighboring beach Lagune.

To get here, take D218 for 10 kilometers toward Biscarrosse. The beach is indicated on the right. Limited parking above.
