About Lake Biscarosse Bordeaux

This naturally formed fresh water lake is one of the biggest in France and covers an area of 55 km². It’s a paradise for families and outdoors types who enjoy its warm, safe waters for sports and the array of cycle paths and walks which fringe the lake.

The lake is surrounded by fine sandy beaches, which are well-connected by flat, easy-to-cycle paths that wend their way through pine forest and along coastline. You can cycle to the Aquapark in less than 20 mins or the famous surfing Beach of Biscarosse Plage in about 35 mins, or the Dunes of Pyla which are the largest in Europe. The area has plenty of things-to-do outdoors, which is where you’ll want to be as the temperature averages 28 to 36° in summer.

The Location

Located on the shores of Lake Biscarrosse, near Biscarosse town and one hour south of Bordeaux, Club Mayotte offers a fantastic range of top notch, all-inclusive water sports and activities. We’re just a few kilometres from Mimizan, Arcachon and the Dune of Pyla, Mayotte is perfectly positioned for exploring the beaches of the Landes and the South-West Aquitaine…

Wind and Weather

With a location in south west France, only 70 miles (as the crow flies) from Spain, the weather is understandably warm and reliable! It averages 28 to 36° in summer and the water temperature is 26 to 28°!

It is nicely tempered by a consistent afternoon lake-breeze that makes water sports so popular.

The morning’s often start with a Force 1-2 and flat calm waters; perfect for water skiing or kids to get afloat and beginners to learn to sail or windsurf. Most days the afternoon will bring a Force 2-4 breeze and an added fun factor for sailors and kite surfers.

Child & Family

The kids are going to love the campsite’s private beach where they can paddle around in warm waters, play on inflatables, kayaks and paddle boards; or learn to sail in calm conditions on kids-size ‘Catsy’ catamarans with the club’s own sailing school.

This family-friendly Club boasts an impressive water park, four outdoor pools, and an adventure park. The campsite’s own kids club is open daily, giving grown-ups some well-deserved time off.

Another big hit with kids (and adults) is the club’s own Adventure Park in the woods with rope swings aerial runways and fun in the treetops. So make use your free pass which we offer with all holidays.

  • Baby-Club from 3 months to 3 years old (fees apply)
  • Mayou Club for ages 4 to 7
  • Junior Club for ages 8 to 12
  • Teens’ Club for ages 13 to 17 (only in July/August)

Top Things to Do

Make use of our free Active Pack and try paddle boarding and kayaking on the lake or go for a cycle around the huge network or cycle paths which circuit the lake. For a day out visit the light house at Cap Ferret, the historic museum of Hydraviation or the sand dunes of Pyla (the highest sand dune in Europe). All are located a short drive away. Or why not learn to surf on nearby Biscarosse beach, a vast and long stretch of unspoilt sand that runs for 106 km!

Upgrade your Active Pack and try a lesson of Windsurfing on the calm waters from the campsite beach, or perhaps Catamaran sailing or water skiing is more your thing? All these sports and plenty more are so easy to do and moments away from your mobile home.
