Relaxation and swimming
At Biscarrosse and Parentis lakes

Clear, warm and shallow waters: this body of water embodies the sweetness of life in the heart of nature between relaxing or more dynamic outdoor leisure activities. Its beaches are perfect for relaxing while sunbathing or relaxing in the shade of pine trees. They are also idyllic for indulging in beach games, for convivial moments with family or friends. Swimming in the lake is supervised in the summer season, ideal for soaking your feet or swimming a few breaststrokes with your children. Unlike the waves of the ocean, its waters are calm. As Biscarrosse and Parentis lakes are independent of the Atlantic, they are not influenced by ocean tides either. Swimming is therefore possible at any time of the day.
