An excursion to Atlantic coast was waiting for us after Bordeaux. I never heard earlier about such a place as Arcachon.
At the tenth day of our travel we had already been tired enough by various impressions, therefore a prospect simply to be expiated in the sea seemed us very tempting. However the reality has beaten all my expectations.
I have taken advantage of this circumstance, have passed about kilometer from the central part of a beach, and I appeared practically in loneliness. When up to the nearest person remains more than 100 meters, I have took off swimming trunks and rushed into an ocean wave! I was almost stunned! The purest sea water has absorbed me, and I for some time have grown dumb with delight! For the sake of it is necessary to live and come here through almost four thousand kilometers! I tested such a pleasure last time almost twenty years ago on a deserted beach of Pizunda.
When we overcame long enough way through a dune, perspective of a sandy beach and boundless ocean was opened, my spirit was intercepted! Here it is a scale! Baltic dunes and beaches do not go with this magnificence to any comparison.
Unless it is possible to compare some tens meters of width of a beach in Jurmala with a beach of Arcachon in width some hundreds meters. And this beach reaches along a coast tens kilometers up to Bearitz on a border with Spain! Accordingly the density having a rest of tourists was very quickly reduced up to zero.
You can watch my 1 min 59 sec Video Arcachon out of my Youtube channel.
