6. Hossegor, Aquitaine

On the west side of the country, Hossegor can be found in the Landes department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France, 30mins north of Biarritz airport (which has direct flights from London, Birmingham and Southampton in the summer) or 90mins south of Bordeaux. The overnight ferries to Bilbao or Santander in Spain are another option, that also gives you some amazing dophin-spotting opportunities on route! .  It is a well-known seaside resort with circa 7km of beaches and is considered to have some of the best surfing conditions in the world. The area also has a large forest and wetland area which is popular with nature lovers, walkers and cyclists. The Plage du Parc beach is particularly suited for young families due to its protected Lagoon and a pleasant average temperature of 23 degrees.   The area also offers a large aquatic park at Seignosse and a programme of summer activities aimed at children during the summer.
