Two days ago, Mila and I took the boat to spend the day with Catherine who was staying with friends in the Cap-Ferret. Taking a boat trip to the Cap-Ferret for the day is one of my favourite thing when I’m in the Bay of Arcachon. It feels like a mini adventure and it’s a really nice way to spend the day and do something completely different. You can get a ride from Le Moulleau, Pyla or Arcachon and crossings varies between 20 min and an hour and will drop you at different spots on the island.
We are enjoying the most gorgeous weather at the moment and spent last weekend at the beach going from one bar to another to make the day lasts longer. If you are planning to come to this side of the world, here are the coolest beach bars in the Bay of Arcachon where we love to hang out. I have listed 7 (all kids friendly), one to try every night of the week…Enjoy!
Last night, we went for a family diner to celebrate my birthday. I didn’t fancy going to a typical French restaurant with 3-course meal because I can no longer stomach such heavy meals (can you!??) and I have a bunch of girlfriends arriving this weekend for a “girls weekend” so I wanted to pace myself. Instead, I wanted to do the two things I love doing the most when I’m in the Bay of Arcachon: Having a drink at La Co(o)rniche because I never get tired of the view of the Dune du Pyla and have oysters Chez Jejehne.
It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the Bay of Arcachon is, even in Winter. Last weekend, the weather was just glorious and so mild for November, it felt like a gift.
