For golf lovers there are two great courses – the Arcachon International and Gujan Mestras (the latter has been used on the European PGA Tour). The courses are quiet and inexpensive yet the standard is very high. Bordeaux is a fabulous golf holiday destination, especially for wine-lovers, as you can split your time between playing at the internationally acclaimed golf courses such as Golf du Médoc with its two championship courses: "Les Châteaux" and "Les Vignes", and booking wine-tasting and vineyard tours.
Arcachon: sailing, kayaking,surfing is very popular and there are summer schools for beginners and ‘big breakers’ for the professionals. Try Le Truc Ver and Le Grand Crohot on Cap Ferret's Atlantic coast which are the most popular spots. Sailing in the bay of Arcachon is a great place for beginners and the more advanced. Arcachon's Port de Plaisance has its own sailing club from where you can hire boats to sail the Bassin, especially the beautiful Ile aux Oiseaux, a wonderful place to stop off at low tide and view the famous Dune de Pyla.
