Seaside resort situated at the top of Medoc peninsula on the Cote d'Argent




North of Bordeaux, by about 86km, this popular seaside resort is a favourite with families who want to have a break by the beach but have plenty of activities to keep them happy.

Still rich with traditional culture you will find everything from interesting architecture and historical villas to weekly markets and UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Sights & Attractions in Soulac-sur-Mer

The magnificent UNESCO listed church is nestled in a quiet spot, close to the coastal sand dunes. Its history dates back to the 1st century AD and a saint named Veronique. 

There are several museums in the local area, showing the history of this part of the Medoc, from ancient times, through to WWII and today.

Beaches in Soulac-sur-Mer

This is a great family resort with around 7km of white sandy beaches backed with pine forests and sand dunes. Three of the main beaches have lifeguards on patrol so you can be assured of safety if you are with young children. Although as with any of the Atlantic Ocean beaches you need to be careful of the waves and strong undertow.

Things to Do in Soulac-sur-Mer

The easiest way to see the coast, the forest and around the town is to make use of the two small tourist trains. One of them does circuits around the streets of the town, a great way to keep children entertained! And the other will take you on a journey up the coast, through the pine forests and to the most northerly point La Pointe de Grave.

Hotels in Soulac-sur-Mer

Although not a large town by any means there are several good places to stay, including the boutique, slightly quirky and rather unique hotel, Au Clair de Labulle and the modern B&B that has spectacular views over the coast, Le Lys des Sables.
