Weather in Lacanau

Lacanau is situated on the coast to the north of Arcachon which is <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />north west of Bordeaux and is also a commune in the Gironde Department in Aquitaine in south western France.  Aquitaine is one of the 26 regions which run along the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees Mountain range on the border with Spain.  This area is a low-land region which makes the weather in winter generally mild.  Summer weather can be a lot warmer than northern areas of France but can be quite wet depending on the proximity to the Pyrenees Mountains and the Spanish border, rain tends to not last too long.  The town boasts a 14 km long beach which offers many water sporting activities, including surfing and the annual surfing competition is held here.  There are 4 supervised beaches during the peak season.  If you prefer, there is also the Lacanau Lake which has activities on offer such as windsurfing and sailing.  Other activities are available in the town such as walking on nature trails, cycling and horse riding. There is also a 18 hole golf course ideal in this season which is located within sand dunes, pine forests and manages to stay dry all year due to the sandy terrain.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
