Discover the bassin d'Arcachon
during a paragliding flight !



Come and fly safely above the largest sand dune in Europe with our paragliding instructors. A breathtaking view of the Arcachon basin and the Banc d'Arguin from the air. An essential activity for young and old to come and try during your visit to the Arcachon basin.

Paragliding is an exciting outdoor activity that allows you to fly like a bird using a paraglider wing. This activity can be done by people of all ages and skill levels, and offers many physical and mental health benefits.

To do a paragliding baptism at the Dune du Pyla, there are no particular prerequisites. Anyone in good health and able to walk to the take-off area can take a paragliding baptism. However, it is important to respect the safety instructions and follow the instructions of the paragliding instructor.

The team is fantastic and the spot incomparable! For a first tandem flight, the instructor was very nice. The weather conditions were capricious but everyone was very responsive so that we could take advantage of the calm! Professionalism, safety and availability, we recommend!

A superb experience, a big thank you to Yannick who is an outstanding pro and to whom I entrusted our 4-year-old son! Thank you for this magical moment and for having reassured me so that I could relax and enjoy this wonderful flight! See you soon, I think we'll see each other again in August with our 4 big cuties to show them the dune from the sky!

An amazing experience to fly over the duneThank you so much and see you soon


The meeting point is on Gaillouneys beach (near the bunkers). After parking in the car park of the “plage du petit Nice”, go down to the beach passing in front of the lifeguard station and go up on foot towards the North (on the right looking at the ocean) for about ten minutes, until at the blockhouses. Look for the banner “Parapente Dune du Pyla”, you have arrived.
