Capbreton : Michelin's recommendations
Visitors are drawn to Capbreton for its seaside allure, large port and family atmosphere. From its wooden pier (built on the orders of Napoleon III) there is a view of the coast, the lower Pyrenees and the mouth of the River Boudigau. Beyond stretches its gulf.
