Camping Arcachon La Hume

8.6

This campground/park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Family-friendly site in Arcachon Bay five minutes’ walk from the beach
  • 15 minutes by public transport to reach Arcachon and Gujan-Mestras
  • Play area; barbecues provided and restaurants a five-minute walk away

What’s on the menu at Camping Arcachon La Hume? Direct access to a sandy beach, sublime sunsets over Arcachon Bay and plenty of oyster-eating in Gujan-Mestras, 15 minutes’ journey away by public transport, for sure. Water activities, coastal walks and more mouth-watering cuisine are likely too.

You see, this small, quiet and family-friendly campsite is based in La Hume in Gironde, just five minutes’ walk from Beach of La Hume, which is lined with tamarisk and pine trees. Access is through a gate located at the bottom of the site, so families, couples and friends have easy access to the fine sand and the water (which handily has supervised swimming).

You might want to leave your car behind, as the site is also a 10-minute walk and a five-minute train (in total, a 15-minute journey) from the centre of Arcachon (a shopping hub with gorgeous 19th-century villas and a lively shopping quarter). In the other direction, Gujan-Mestras (a 10-minute walk and a five-minute train - 15 minutes in total) is a hub for oyster farming and has clusters of tasty oyster restaurants.

Adventurous sorts can jump right into watersports in Arcachon Bay, whether they fancy sailing on a catamaran, windsurfing or surfing. No matter how wet or wild the activities, back at base, this peaceful place is a top spot to recharge your batteries (with a belly full of oysters, of course, or something else tasty that you’ve sourced from the restaurants within five minutes’ walk of the site).

Basic, a little tired but level pitches of a good size.21/09/2022

    Easy access to nature reserve beach. Close to a friendly bar and short walk to other restaurants in a small town.Close to la Hume railway station for trips to Bordeaux and Arcachon. Good network of cycle paths. Can cycle to Arcachon( lovey seaside town) … Fairly close to Dune du Pilat (fantastic).

    Disliked: 

    Slightly unkempt and toilets a bit tired. No sign of anyone cleaning or maintaining the plots. Toilets were clean ( but possibly because the site was almost empty). A bit rough and ready which is quite nice at times. Easy for non campers to access the site.

    Relaxed atmosphere, unfussy and you can walk straight onto the beach. The area is nice with various restaurants and bars within walking distance. The woman running it was very helpful and friendly. But it's not a fancy place so maybe not for everyone..

Directions


Local attractions

Kids (and big kids) can greet the lambs, calves and piglets at La Coccinelle (35 minutes’ walk). The farm park also has slides, log flume and rollercoasters for a bigger thrill. With more leisure parks and inland lakes in Arcachon (15 minutes’ journey by public transport), this site is set up nicely for family breaks.

Being positioned right on the coastal path, there are lots of places your feet can take you too. Wild landscapes include the Dune of Pilat (around two hours and 20 minutes’ walk), the tallest sand dune in Europe, or the Réserve Ornithologique Du Teich (an hour and 45 minutes’ walk or 15 minutes’ drive), a favourite dwelling spot for a variety of birds.

Take the ferry over to the Le Phare du Cap Ferret (two hours’ and 35 minutes’ walk and ferry ride) to get some fabulous views of the bay (after climbing 258 steps). Port de la Teste (45 minutes’ walk) is closer by and packed with oyster farmers lugging around oyster sacks, as well as a fair few waterfront oyster restaurants.
