Top 5 things to do in Hossegor
Hossegor is the first destination chosen by Vagabond! But what does the seaside resort located in the Landes have to offer? The answer in 5 essential activities!
Surf... obviously !
Is it possible to go to Hossegor without getting in the water? The charming Landaise city lives by the rhythm of the waves. Hossegor is undoubtedly the capital of surfing in Europe. It even welcomes one stage of the Surf World Cup every year. So get on your board (or take classes!).
Farniente at the beach or around the lake
With 7km of beaches divided between the ocean and the lake, Hossegor is also a destination for those who just want to relax and sun-bathe. So put your beach towel facing the Atlantic Ocean on one of four beaches: the South Beach (Place du Point d'Or), the North Beach (bld Dune / naturist), the beach of La Gravière (Bld Dune ) and the Central beach. You can also relax around the lake: at the White Beach, Rey Beach, Park Beach or Chênes Lièges Beach.
Admire the local architecture
Between 1900 and 1940, with the development of the seaside resort, many villas were built in Hossegor with an architectural style of its own. Shaping the waterfront, the lake or the golf, the Basque-Landes architecture was forged by Henri Godbarge, Louis Lagrange, Louis and Benjamin Gomez, Leon Cuzol, Jean Prunetti or Albert Pomad. Discover the most beautiful villas of Hossegor by wandering around its streets and alleys.
Eat healthy (or try to)
The Landes is famous for its rich gastronomy. And if foie gras and other duck hearts (yes, duck hearts!) are always on the menu, Hossegor, as a sporting destination, has developed very healthy options. Among the good places not to miss to devour Poke and other Acai Bowl:Tante Jeanne, Louvine and Le Mango Tree !
and let's party !
When you have finished your smoothie, let's have a drink, right? The Landes are known for their sense of hospitality and this is reflected in the many bars around the lake and on the waterfront. Among the establishments not to be missed: L’&tiquette, la petite Paillotte du lac or Coolin' à la plage.
