It's a famous spot for travelers because from may to the end of october, the parking is full of Camping cars, vans. Waves are very good here and there's many peaks.
In the water, there's sometimes some problems of localism but it's not as strong as La Graviere or Biarritz. The atmosphere is very relax on the parking. You'll meet surfers from all over the world.

Les Estagnots - Sweet memories! During Adam`s Bar-Mitzva Surfari to Landes & the French/Spanish Basque region in October 2003, this is the break we liked best. With the motor-caravan hired from Biarritz parked nights in the parking-lot (& next to the WCs) we got awesome/classic waves @ low & high-tides.We also met awesome people like Andy Irons (& his sweet lady), Taj Barrow, Mick Fanning, Lisa Anderson, Chelsea Gregerson, Megan Abubu ( the fearless!), David the Segnoisse cop (French Hai Alay champ & pest extrordinaire about our overnight parking habits) & Max the local 'air-man' from the Capbreton ice-cream parlour.My boy will never forget this visit, the friendly Basque people, friendly & skilled French surfers (male & female). Just everything sweet!
