Vieux Boucau: the Perfect Location!

Vieux Boucau is a typical surfing town in the southwest of France – bustling in summer and calm, pretty and relaxed during the off-season. Vieux Boucau offers a spacious layout, ample facilities and a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants.


The village has a lot going on: there’s a new skate park, a mini-golf course, tennis courts, playgrounds, a bullring (animal-friendly!), a shopping boulevard, supermarkets, and more bars and restaurants than you can handle. The town was built around a large, saltwater lake where people go for a swim or take their SUP, pedal boat or wind-surfboard for a spin.

Bars & Restaurants

When in Vieux Boucau, you won’t need to dine in the same restaurant twice. Besides, there’s something for everyone here. From the famous “pain americain” at the snack bar, to dining in style at a high-end, ocean-side restaurant. Go by car and there’s even more to discover … we’d love to give you some tips!

Looking to party? Especially during the high-season you can dance the night away! The Mojito bar and Captain’s are the major hotspots here.

The Weather in Vieux Boucau

The Atlantic Coast of South West France is characterized by pleasant springs, warm summers and autumns with lots of sun and little wind.


Usually nice and sunny during the day. Generally, the wind lays low and there is a lot of good surfing days. The temperature drops in the evening, but that doesn’t bother us – we have insulated Sheddie Cabins and a heated pool!


Summer is a fantastic period here: long, sunny days and high temperatures. Typical for the region is the morning offshore wind, with a sea breeze starting at about noon. That’s good for chilling at the beach, but for the waves – not so much. That’s why we prefer to surf in the mornings and evenings, but we generally don’t pass up a refreshing afternoon session either!


This is our favorite season: the ocean is still nice and warm from the summer sun, the days are mild and there’s little wind. Add to this the fact that the summer crowds have largely gone home and you’ll immediately understand why we love autumn so much!
