From Bordeaux it takes approximately 50 mn. Take the A63 highway, then follow on the A66 highway and exit at either Mios/Biscarrosse or continue in the direction of La Teste/Arcachon and follow Biscarrosse direction. The latter exit goes via Dune du Pyla (Europe largest sand dune) and can be faster and more scenic route.
