About Hossegor

Hossegor, just north of Biarritz on the Cote d'Argent, is a delightful resort with much to offer in return for the longer drive south.

The Cote d'Argent, stretching from the River Garonne south of Royan to Biarritz boasts the longest, straightest, sandiest beach in Europe. Facing the dark blue of Biscay and backed everywhere by the dark green of the pines, this strip of light golden sand, almost white in the blazing sun offers a unique sense of space and freedom.

Hossegor is separated from neighbouring Cap Breton by the Bourret Canal. It has a large tidal lake with sandy beaches, a canal, two rivers, the ocean beaches and the forest with the backdrop of the Pyrenees in sight from any small elevation and the beach.

This is one of the best places on the Cote d'Argent for swimming. Just off the coast there is a deep trench in the ocean bed, ten times as deep as the sea either side of it. This valley, parallel with the shore and formed at the same time as the mountain chain of the Pyrennes, has the effect of calming the sea so that the waves reaching the beach at Hossegor are reduced in size. Bathers have the choice of a stimulating dip in the sea or a swim in the warmer and shallower waters of the tidal lake. Recently many kilometers of cycle track have been developed around the town and through the pine forests, making cycling a pleasure for all the family.

At the turn of the century, the present site of Hossegor was deserted. It was not until a small colony of writers and artists from Biarritz settled there in 1900 that a community began to grow up there, the charm of it's situation making it steadily more popular. Today the 2.5km long lake is especially popular with dinghy sailors and windsurfers. There are plenty of other facilities for other outdoor activities including an established 18 hole golf course.

Hossegor is a lively place with it's Sporting Casino (cinema, casino, nightclub), for it's traditional entertainment of Courses Landaises and Pelote Basque, and for it's varied shopping and many restaurants.

Interesting outings are to Dax (the most important spa in France after Aix-les-Bains, famous for it's mud baths), Bayonne (capital of Basque region, a crowded, lively and prosperous city), Biarritz (set in a coastline of almost orchestrated beauty, once again very much in fashion in a more discreet way with the super-rich and famous), and a choice of many possible trips into the Pyrenees for walking, mountain biking, canoeing and white water rafting.
