Hossegor, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Landes
Hossegor, or more precisely Soorts-Hossegor, is located on the Atlantic coast, north of Bayonne and Biarritz in Gascony, near the Basque Country. What sets Hossegor apart from the region’s other seaside coastal resorts with their vast beaches, are its many surf spots and surf schools which explains why Hossegor is sometimes described as France’s surf capital.
But Hossegor isn’t just about surfing: there are many other beach and night life activities to try out and the resort is very busy in the summer.
The beach is within easy driving distance of the town centre. The beaches here are magnificent, typical of this part of the Atlantic coastline, and extend all the way from Arcachon in the north to Saint Jean-de-Luz in the south, near the Spanish border.
Hossegor beaches are easily accessible thanks to their wooden walkways and the most central parts of the beaches are patrolled by lifeguards.
