Arcachon

Arcachon is the largest town in the place the French call Le Bassin D'Arcachon. It's almost completely closed off by a circular bay that seems to form a lake, but if you look closely you'll see that it's actually open to the Atlantic at its southern end near the Arcachon side. This bay is famous for being one of the most famous tourist attractions in France, especially in the summer when its streets, beaches, and restaurants become busy with people. However, another thing that makes this place famous is its delicious oysters! There are a lot of different kinds and different flavors to choose from. The entire bay is surrounded by fishing villages and oyster beds, for me turned out to be a lovely place to stroll by and admire its stately homes on the edge of the beach to remember better times and a special charm of past centuries. The only downside is that in summer as night falls there are millions of small flies which for me proved a bit overwhelming, but people looked very customary
