Gironde

Trip Planner Europe  /  France  /  Nouvelle-Aquitaine  /  Gironde
Sightseeing Historic Sites Nature
Gironde is a department of the Aquitaine region well known for its Bordeaux wine, its holiday resorts on Arcachon Bay, and as the home of Europe's longest beach, the Côte d'Argent, which attracts many surfers each year. The department is also the birthplace of Jacques-Yves Cousteau who studied all forms of aquatic life. The Great Dune of Pilat in Arcachon Bay near Bordeaux is the tallest sand dune in Europe and a mecca for hiking and windsurfing. The Gironde estuary, with the same name as the department, is where the mouths of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers merge. Gastronomy is important here, with diverse oyster flavors ranging from the delicate aroma of fresh vegetables and citrus fruits to sweet milkiness. Arcachon oyster varieties owe their flavorful reputation to the high quality of plankton they consume during their growth, and are popular attractions in their own right.
