If what holidays are all about is doing just what you like and not doing what you don’t like, then this is the ideal place!
It’s an easy ride along the cycle path to the ocean for an afternoon’s surfing, but you could also cycle to Cap Ferret and visit the iconic lighthouse,
or to Piraillan for a look round the market.
And for those who prefer the ‘lazy’ option, the tranquil waters of the bay are so inviting!
Take a dip surrounded by a fabulous panorama
– the view from the beach features the charming oyster –
farming village with the Dune du Pilat as a backdrop – just magical!
Why not take a painting of the bay
home with you as a souvenir?
Set right beside the dune, the village harbours a typical fishermen’s district.
A row of attractive, brightly-painted wooden huts line the beach. Stroll through the narrow streets to explore the oyster-farming village and soak up the atmosphere which pervades it – not only in summer but all year round!
Don’t forget to look into the two exhibition rooms, where works by local artists are on display. Why not take the opportunity to buy a painting of the bay?
People come here from all over the Peninsula
every year on 15 August!
The ‘Fêtes de la mer’ (festival of the sea) has become an absolute must!
There’s fun for all ages, tastes and inclinations – regattas for the pinasses (typical local boats), oyster-tasting, funfairs and firework. Everyone comes to Le Canon on 15 August.
What a contrast with the habitual peace and quiet, so typical of this charming village!
