In 30 minutes from your 4-star campsite, you can easily reach the seaside resort of Contis les bains. During your visit, you can choose according to your desires: farniente, cultural visits, walks in the middle of nature or water sports. Something to please both young and old!
Classified as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Landes, the beach of Contis offers various possibilities of activities.
Particularly popular for surfing, the beach of Contis extends over 5 kilometres and allows the greatest number of people to indulge in their favourite activities. Also popular with families thanks to the presence of a children's club close to the town centre and surveillance in summer, it is also accessible to people with reduced mobility.
A cycle path runs alongside it, making it possible to reach Mimizan, 15 kilometres away, and is a good idea for a walk to the beach, but also to other interesting sites in Contis.
Built in the 19th century on the orders of Napoleon III, the Contis lighthouse is the only lighthouse in the Landes. Recognisable by its black and white spiral bands on its 38-metre height, the lighthouse has not always had the aesthetic that we know today. Originally, the lighthouse was entirely white, and it was only in the years that it changed its appearance.
The Contis lighthouse is available for visits. However, you will have to climb the 183 steps of the cast iron staircase before reaching the dome and its breathtaking view. On arrival, a splendid view of the ocean, the Landes forest and the beaches mingled with the dunes which serve as a link between the two natural elements.
Discover the Courant de Contis, a Natura 2000 listed site, during a walk in the heart of nature by stand-up paddle or canoe. During your walk, you can observe the lush fauna and flora of the current. More than a hundred species live side by side in this unspoilt nature. Among them are turtles, otters, many species of birds such as kingfishers, egrets and many others!
