The Nature Reserve of the salt meadows in Arès was founded in 1983 to protect the floristic richness of the largest salt meadows in Aquitaine. It presents a unique continuity of natural environments between the wooded dune and the sea, including 200 ha of salt meadows.
Due to the play of the tides, the salt meadows are made up of diversified micro-habitats. They are home to rare and protected species of plants and insects that can withstand very specific ecological conditions: temporary covering by sea water and presence of salt in the soil. The attentive visitor will be able to observe, in addition to the green lizard, numerous species of birds (herons, ducks, curlews, bluebirds...) or the marten and the otter for the luckiest ones.

Atlantic Ocean : Grand Crohot beach
The Abberts campsite is only a few minutes away from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. The nearest beach is the Grand Crohot beach, 9 kilometers by road and 11 kilometers by bicycle path. From the campsite take the direction of Cap Ferret.
The beach of Grand Crohot of Lège-Cap-Ferret is one of the most frequented beaches of the peninsula of Cap Ferret. It is also the closest oceanic beach to the city center of Lège-Cap-Ferret and the close cities of the basin of Arcachon. This beach of fine sand extends on several kilometers in direction of Le Porge in the north and of Grand Piquey in the south (level of the beach of Truc Vert). There is only a supervised area in summer on this beach, at the level of the big parking (1500 places) and restaurants. After the blockhouse, to the south, it is possible to practice kitesurfing, even in summer.
The beach is supervised from the beginning of June to mid-September, so it offers all the advantages of a day at the beach with family or friends, sunbathing, swimming in complete safety or thrills on the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
