Lake Hourtin-Carcans - Tourism in the Gironde

Located in the heart of the Médoc Landes, Lake Hourtin-Carcans, measuring 5,667 hectares, is the largest freshwater lake in France! A preserved natural environment with wild marshes, sand dunes and pine forests, this huge body of water is perfect for outdoor activities such as sailing, swimming, water skiing, windsurfing, canoeing, fishing, kite surfing, paddle boating, or walking and biking along the trails and cycle paths that line the shores of the lake. Supervised in the summer, the beautiful sandy beaches of Carcans-Maubuisson and Hourtin will delight lovers of relaxation, and are also great for kids, who can enjoy the calm waters of the lake safely...

Awarded the Famille Plus label, the resort of Hourtin is especially enchanting for little ones, with its Children's Island, a 10-hectare leisure park designed for children aged 3 months to 12 years old!
