Lacanau is also a top surfing destination, a famous seaside resort on the Atlantic Coast. Its vast sandy beaches, popular surf spots with board sports fans, and particularly festive and lively summer atmosphere make it a popular holiday destination. While the beaches and waves attract many holidaymakers eager to enjoy the ocean, Lacanau also appeals to green country lovers, with its pine forest dotted with bike trails, and unspoilt lake ideal for sailing, windsurfing, fishing or canoeing.
Outside the city there are a handful of surfing waves dotted along the coast, but inside there is a large stretch of beach surrounded by sandbars and jetties. Consistent surfing, easily checked from the boardwalk at Plage Centrale before choosing a session at La Nord, La Sud or Super Sud among 14 km of ideal beaches with a W-NW swell of medium size. Handles more size thanks to the rock jetties ' deep scalloped baines that are there to hold the sand in place. Every bit as good as Landes, especially in summer when in the W windswells it is often bigger. Rapidly peeling low tide runners or tapering mid-to-high tide shories in the rips are sometimes separated by a deep trench, or spin all the way.
