Capbreton offers seaside allure, a large marina and a family atmosphere. From its wooden pier (built on the orders of Napoleon III) there is a fine view of the coast, the Basque Pyrenees and the mouth of the River Boudigau. The Gouf de Capbreton is an underwater canyon offshore. The present-day port is not on the ocean, but at the confluence of the River Bourret and River Boucarot. Be sure to visit the Maison de l'Oralité et du Patrimoine and, at Labenne, the Marais d'Orx Nature Reserve.
