Camping Village Resort & Spa le Vieux Port is a well established destination appealing particularly to families; this lively site has approximately 1500 pitches (87 for touring) of mixed sizes, most with electricity (6A). They also offer a variety of accommodation for rental. The camping area is well shaded by pines and pitches are generally of a good size, attractively grouped around the toilet blocks. There are many tour operators here and well over a third of the site is taken up with mobile homes and chalets. An enormous 7,000 sq.m. aquatic park is now open and is the largest on any French campsite. This heated complex is exceptional, boasting five outdoor pools (all 25°C), three large water slides plus waves and a heated spa. There is also a heated indoor pool.
The area to the north of Bayonne is heavily forested and a number of very large campsites are attractively located close to the superb Atlantic beaches. Le Vieux Port is probably the largest, and certainly one of the most impressive, of these. At the back of the site a path leads across the dunes to a good beach (400 m). Other recent innovations include an outdoor fitness area and a superb riding centre. All in all, this is a lively site with a great deal to offer an active family.
