At the heart of the bay, equidistant from Arcachon and Cap Ferret, you will discover the famous Bird Island, and its “tchanquées” cabins. The island offers about fifty huts spread in the heart of five small neighbourhoods. Arriving on the island, you will probably meet several boats at anchor. Although difficult to access and very preserved, the Bird Island welcomes many visitors during the summer season because of its proximity to Arcachon and  Lege Cap-Ferret, two very popular seaside resorts.
