Why stay in Capbreon if you’d rather stay in Hossegor?

Well, because the two towns touch so closely that it’s as if they were one. In Capbreton, a dune forms a natural barrier limiting coastal erosion and acting as a protective bar for ecosystems. It can be explored via a 2.7-kilometre path winding along its slopes, starting from the entrances to the Savane, Piste and Océanides beaches. There are few places in France, apart from the beaches on the west coast of the English Channel, where you’ll find such natural sand fortifications. Capbreton is a busy fishing port as well as a marina. A renowned seaside resort with a population of 8,750, Capbreton is also a popular surfing destination.
