Your camping holiday at Mimizan Plage will give you the opportunity to get to know the largest department in France: the Gironde. And there are plenty of things to see, do and visit in this superb area, which is made up of the forests of the Landes de Gascogne, the world-famous vineyards and the Atlantic coastline, also known as the Côte d'Argent. You will quickly realise that the Gironde can be transformed into a playground of exploration for a sporting, cultural or relaxing holiday.

The landscapes are varied in the Gironde, and they are conducive to all sorts of activities that will make your stay in the Landes about 1 hour 15 minutes from the campsite a pleasure. Go for a walk or a mountain bike ride in the Landes forest, explore the vineyards of the Medoc region, and enjoy a breath of fresh air on the Atlantic coast with its sand dunes and maritime pines that will accompany your days at the beach. How can we not mention the two stars of the Bassin d'Arcachon? The famous Dune du Pilat and its incredible panorama as well as the Ile aux Oiseaux and its cabanes tchanquées.
Your camping holiday in Mimizan will allow you to enjoy the ocean beaches or those of the Arcachon basin near the oyster villages. There are plenty of seaside resorts in the department and you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to putting down your beach towel and enjoying a water sports activity: Arcachon and Lacanau, the world-famous surfing spot, will enchant you with their fine sandy beaches and their many tourist attractions.
Culture and heritage in Gironde
What would the Gironde department be without its vineyards? Take the Bordeaux wine route, discover its emblematic châteaux, its unusual villages and taste the best wines of the Médoc. Visit the magnificent city of Bordeaux, which is home to several museums on wine culture, or make a diversion to Saint-Emilion, whose vineyards are a World Heritage Site. Gastronomy in Gironde is also the famous oysters of the Bassin d'Arcachon that you will enjoy during your camping holiday in Mimizan in the Landes, as well as a simple and authentic cuisine that should make your taste buds turn over.
