We therefore offer you to discover the traditional Oyster Port of La Teste-de-Buch, little-known by the tourists yet anchored in its traditions.
Your day will start, depending on the tides, by a 3-hour boat trip around the Bay, in a traditional electric boat (called “Ti’llole”) that will allow you to discover from a distance the famous Bird’s Island as well as the Cap-Ferret peninsula.
Then, back to the harbour, you will enjoy some fresh oysters and seafoods in a typical oyster-farming cabin. Once your lunch done, a tour guide will take you to the Salt Meadow on the west side of the port in order to observe birds and plants that are numerous in this protected wetland. Finally, the tour guide will take you around the traditional oyster port, and will share its history, explain its traditional boats, fishing methods used back in the day…
