Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
There are swimming areas and activities suitable for all ages, but some slides and activities have height restrictions.

How to Get There
Atlantic Park is located 28 miles (45 kilometers) north of Biarritz in Seignosse. Buses from nearby towns, such as Bayonne and Dax, stop outside the Tourist Information Office in Seignosse, from which it’s about a 10-minute signposted walk. Alternatively, take a taxi or drive; free parking is available on-site.
When to Get There
Atlantic Park is open from June to early September, but the busiest time is during peak season (July and August), when opening hours are also extended. Plan to get there when the park opens midmorning, especially if you want a sun lounger or umbrella. Look out for special events such as night openings, foam parties, and Aquagym classes throughout the summer.

Visit the AquaZone Wipeout, an inflatable water park on Saint-Pée Lake; spot exotic marine life at the Biarritz Aquarium; enjoy the interactive exhibitions at the Cité de l'Océan; or pack a picnic and spend the day swimming and sunbathing on the Grande Plage.
