Location

Carcans-Plage is located right next to the ocean, in the heart of the Medoc area. The small lovely village offers shopping facilities, restaurants, and bars for surfers and sunbathers. Apart from places to eat, drink, and socialize, Carcans-Plage also has a lot of quiet spots. The surrounding forest invites you to explore on foot or by bike. On the beach, you can walk for hours and will find less and fewer people.

Three kilometers further inland, you will get to the village Maubuisson. The village lies on the shores of a lake and has a Mediterranean flair with all its sailing boats and yachts. If you follow the coastline for 10 kilometers you will reach Lacanau, one of the most popular holiday destinations of the Medoc region. Lacanau offers nightlife, restaurants, bars, and shopping facilities.
