The Moulleau district is one of the most famous districts of the city of Arcachon. Located by the sea, it is indeed a very lively district with its shops and activities. It is a real pillar of Arcachon’s nightlife. The district is accessible directly by bike or so thanks to the DINGOVELOS bike rental. Let’s walk the cycle paths of the Arcachon Bay!

Places to discover

The district runs along one of the beautiful beaches of Arcachon on which it is possible to relax, Moulleau beach. At the very end is the Moulleau jetty. La Jetée is one of the places to see in the Arcachon Basin, which offers a breathtaking view of the Cap Ferret peninsula. In the distance we can see Bird Island and its tchanquées huts.

Set back inland, the Notre-Dame-Des Passes church is a jewel of 19th century Neo-Byzantine architecture. In the continuity of the shopping street of the district it has a unique point of view from the heights. You will have to pedal lightly to access it or take an e-bike for more ease since it is located on an old dune. The church was built to accommodate sailors who entered the Basin by boat. You should know that the church is the most requested for weddings in the region.
