Boasting a 14kms coastline facing the Atlantic Ocean, over 2,300 hours of sunlight each year, and a wide variety of outdoor activities, it's not surprising the town of Lacanau in southwestern France has become such a popular destination for tourists. Lacanau is just 60kms west of Bordeaux by car hire at Lacanau.
Car rental at Lacanau is strongly recommended as this area has few public transportation options, and the nearest large city, Bordeaux, is an hour's drive away. Bordeaux is also one of the easiest places to find cheap car hire at Lacanau, especially its Mérignac airport where most internationally renowned car hire companies have offices.
Lacanau is perhaps most famous as one of the first European stops of the world surfing championships, but surfing isn't the only activity visitors can enjoy on its four supervised beaches of golden sand. There are also many schools for surfing, canoeing, and kitesurfing available in Lacanau, and even disabled visitors can enjoy the water on one of Lacanau's two beach wheelchairs known as 'tiralos.'
Large Moutchic Lake, on the other hand, is the preferred location for sailing, wind surfing, and fishing. The most scenic way to travel between the beaches and the lake is bicycling through pine forests on 100kms of cycling paths, while more relaxing Lacanau activities include admiring the wildlife at the protected nature reserve of Cousseau Pond or getting the full spa treatment at one of Lacanau's two balneotherapy centres.
Lacanau is also home to three golf courses, three equestrian clubs, and dozens of colourful seaside villas for visitors to admire while strolling through the town.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
