Belonging to the commune La Teste-de-Buch, the seaside destination Pyla sur Mer has the privilege of being home to the highest dune in Europe, at 117 meters, the Dune de Pyla (or dune de Pilat). It is not the only attribute of this touristic city. We also find three different types of beaches, which is very rare: the beaches in the Bassin d'Arcachon to the foot of the dune de Pyla for a calm atmosphere all the way to Moulleau Beach in Arcachon, the beaches directly on the Atlantic for the big waves or the freshwater beaches on Cazaux Lake, protected by a forest.
In the summer we can also go to the Banc d'Arguin across from the dune to take advantage of this magical place, a natural reserve.
Climbing the dune de Pilat is the favorite activity for those visiting town. It is accessible by stairs from April to the end of October, or directly from the sides (more difficult). You'll need about twenty minutes to arrive at the summit. Those who like a little more excitement can practice paragliding from here.
The Bassin d'Arcachon gives the occasion to discover pretty little villages and several oyster farms where we can buy and savor the oysters from the Bassin or visit the famous beaches of Arcachon that are found a few kilometers from Pyla sur Mer.
