Very cool between bodyboarders but be careful of old dumb gnarly surfers. You can watch the ocean from your car. There a lot of good sandbars. As the same of the other spots in this region, it closes out when the swell is too big. The wave is espacially crowded during summer. Come early to avoid the crowd and to have good wind.
it's great !!!

timing is every thing - I just got back from s/w France. The waves were decent. When the sets came, they came fast. This time of year, we had the entire beach to ourselves. Check out Seven Seas Ecole de Surf in Le Moulleau. Tele 06 67 24 66 88. Talk to Julian or Thomas. Very good surfers who surf the world and know their stuff. The beaches and people were awesome. Definetly not the hip trip in Biarritz. This entire strectch from Arcachon to Biarritz looks fun to explore. I'll be back there.
