The Dune du Pilat is one of the most visited tourist sites in France due to its fame.  It’s situated on the Atlantic Coast, just at the mouth of the Bassin d’Arachon.  This dune has more than fifty-five million cubic metres of sand, and has a height of more than 110 metres.  This makes it the highest dune in all of France.

With a beauty unique in Europe, it’s the perfect place to visit to find new experiences. You’ll enjoy the wind that comes from the Bassin d’Arachon and from the large forest area of Les Landes de Gascogne.

Once you’ve climbed to the top of the dune, you’ll have a wonderful panoramic view over everything that’s happening around you.  You can take advantage of the shelter from the trees at the foot of the dune for some relaxing time with your family or your friends. To be even more satisfied with your visit to the highest dune in Europe, choose to stay in La Rive Campsite.
