JUST A SMALL 10 KILOMETERS AWAY FROM CARCANS LIES A TOWN NAMED LACANAU. IT’S A PARADISE FOR SURF CONTESTS, GOING OUT AND GOOD VIBES. EVERY WEDNESDAY WE VISIT LACANAU BY BIKE, WHAT CAN YOU DO OVER THERE?
We charge a small fee for the bicycles, and it will take you around 30 minutes to get there. Just the bike trail itself is worth it, as it takes you through the nearby forest. The only thing you need to think of on your way back is to turn on your lights (these are included when you rent the bike), as there are no streetlights next to the paths. It’s quite an adventure going back home because of this. 😉
You can choose to follow your own plan when in Lacanau, or to join the group for dinner and going out. There are a lot of really nice surf shops and restaurants throughout Lacanau.
Did you know that one of the oldest professional surf contests takes place in Lacanau every year? In August you can visit the ‘Lacanau Pro’. This surf contest is held since 1979 and challenges the best surfers in the world to compete against each other. Besides the world-class surfing, you can also join clinics or one of the many parties that are held during this 10-day event.
At night you can visit one of the many surf bars or clubs in Lacanau. Especially in high season you can party until the early morning. Enough choice for every need, there are smaller hangouts where you can enjoy a drink, or big clubs with dancers and theme parties.
So make sure when you visit Carcans, you also visit Lacanau for a day!
