A multitude of activities are available in this town at the end of the Médoc. Leave from Port-Médoc to see the Cordouan lighthouse or visit the other lighthouses. Take the little train from the Pointe de Grave to Soulac-sur-Mer or walk along the beach to discover the bunkers still buried.

Meet the Tourist Office team, we have lots of good ideas to share!
The Cordouan lighthouse
With its remarkable architecture, it stands guard at the mouth of the Gironde estuary. It is the only active lighthouse in the world located in the open sea and open to visitors. It is a unique site, not to be missed in the region. At 67.50 metres high and with 301 steps, the Cordouan Lighthouse takes us back four centuries. Recognised at the time as one of the "8 wonders of the world", this exceptional monument guarantees a totally unusual experience through the royal history of France.
Discover Port Bloc from where the ferries leave for the "Le Verdon-Royan" crossing, but also the 3 other ports in the commune: the Grand Port Maritime de Bordeaux, a commercial port and a port of call for liners, the Vieux Port aux Huîtres, in the heart of the village, a picturesque old oyster port with its "guinguettes" and artists' huts in summer, and finally Port Médoc, a magnificent modern and ecological marina from which you can go for a walk on the sea or on the estuary, and the starting point for visits to the Cordouan lighthouse.
Jump on the little tourist train
On the rails in summer, the little tourist train takes you to Soulac-sur-Mer! It crosses the pine forest and runs alongside the ocean, where you can enjoy a fresh breeze and a unique view. With family or friends, this means of transport is both practical and enjoyable.
On the trail of the bunkers
Take a step back in history and go to the seafront to discover the bunkers, remains of the Second World War. An opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the past.
