Did you know?
If you want to save the money for the parking lot or if it's too crowded, you may take - at the roundabout in front of the dune - the direction of Arcachon and then turn left at the next roundabout (towards "La Corniche"). After a few hundred meters, you'll find a certain nummer of free parking lots at the left and the right side of the street. At the sharp left turn in front of the restaurant a staircase leads to the beach and the dune.
However, this way to the dune is longer and takes more time!
