About La Salie

Technically in Gironde but an introduction to Landes surf with sandbars shifting incredibly fast around two access points. The most reliable banks are beside the 800m long wharf, plus some good bodyboard shorebreak just to the north and more banks down the beach at the blockhaus.

The wharf outfall pipe discharges stinky, suspicious foam and swimming is theoretically banned. Often crowded, despite the long walk in. If it's flat, surf the highest dunes in Europe at the dune du Pyla (117m).
