Approximately two hours west of Loubes Bernac lies the Atlantic coast. 

The west coast of France is famous for its long, sandy beaches and is ideal for sunbathing and surfing. If you fancy a day by the sea, the area around the Bassin d'Arcachon is worth a visit. Arcachon has a lovely beach right in front of the town, but if you're looking for something a little more private, just head south a little where there are plenty of endless beaches. 

The region is famous for the oysters produced in the basin area and there are oyster shacks scattered along the shoreline which make great locations for sampling the local fare with a glass of chilled wine. 

The sand dune at Pyla sur Mer is the highest in Europe and well worth a visit.
