In mid-September, work began to re-qualify the reception area of the Grand Site de la Dune du Pilat. During the duration of the work, estimated at 18 months, some inconvenience may be caused.
For the safety of all, certain areas may, for a given time, be closed to the public. They will be signposted and signposted.
How is your visit organized during this period?
- Good news ! throughout the construction phase, the Dune du Pilat Grand Site remains accessible.
- Nevertheless, from October, oversized vehicles such as school coaches, tourist buses and camper vans can no longer access the reception area. From October 11 to November 15, 2021, travelers will be served at the bus stop, at the roundabout located at the entrance to the reception area. For motorhomes, it is possible to park in the ocean beaches car parks and return via the cycle paths or use the Baïa public transport lines from Arcachon or La Teste de Buch.
- During the construction period, a so-called “ephemeral” village is set up to guarantee public reception and ensure the continuity of public service. Until March 2022, a reception and information point and a sanitary area will be available to visitors. Then, for the high season, two premises intended for take-away sales will complete the system put in place.
- The work will lead to the closure of certain areas of the reception area for a given time. For the safety of all, these areas will be closed to the public. They will be signposted and signposted.
Throughout the construction phase, the Syndicate teams continue to work on a daily basis to ensure the preservation of the site and the quality of your visit. The activities allowing to discover the Grand Site in a privileged way are maintained: posted greetings, guided walks, guided tours, hikes, story walks ...
