No need to trek miles to check out the surf conditions of different spots in the Landes!

The webcams installed by the Landes General Council are spread all along the Côte d’Argent, from the north to the south:

- Biscarrosse : north spot, south spot and Plage Sud
- Mimizan : south beach, west beach, north beach
- Contis : south beach
- Seignosse : Estagnots beach, Bourdaines beach and Le Penon
- Hossegor : central beach
- Capbreton : the Port

The webcams are significant draw for tourists: in certain départements you can visit a museum, an abbey or a château… In the Landes, you can see the size and quality of the waves with a single click.

The webcams are also useful for when you’re feeling a bit down…! Did you have a fabulous time on holiday in the Landes and you want to re-immerse yourself in the atmosphere? One click and you’re looking at the ocean once more ….

A small piece of advice: do you want keep things discreet when out walking with your new girlfriend at Capbreton Port? It might be best to take a little detour if you don’t want to make too many waves…!
