Location: At Gujan-Mestras on the south side of the Arcachon basin (west of Bordeaux).

General Info: Check their website  for more information.

Our recommendations: It’s worth arriving early as these water parks tend to get busy later in the day.  That way you’ll get the best value from the day.  Don’t forget to take plenty of strong sun tan lotion and reapply it regularly!

For the children: Well if they are above the age of 10 and confident with water you’ll probably lose them for the day here – so take a picnic and a good book to read!
