Desplazarse en el interior de la zona costera de Las Landas no es tarea fácil si no se dispone de vehículo o de bicicleta. No hay trenes de cercanías ni líneas de autobuses que recorran todos los municipios cercanos a la costa. Difícil, sí, pero no imposible. Veamos cuáles son los medios de transporte existentes.


Firstly, the train from Irún - which passes through Baiona - runs almost vertically across the whole of the Landes region. This is the TER, which links the Spanish border, in Hendaye, with the rest of France, and which in our case goes via Baiona, Dax and Bordeaux. This train, like all trains in France, allows bicycles; ask at the ticket office where you buy your tickets and they will give you all the information you need.

If you opt for this means of transport to go to the Landes, you will have to get off at the stop that has a bus connection with the town you want to go to. In the following section ("Buses") we explain all the bus lines that connect the bus stops of the Ter with the towns of the coast.

This railway has 11 stops in Les Landes, as can be seen on the attached map:

    1. Boucau
    2. Ondres
    3. Labenne
    4. Bénesse-Maremne
    5. St-Vincent-de-Tyrosse
    6. St-Geours-de-Maremne
    7. Saubusse-les-Bains
    8. Dax
    9. Morcenx
    10. Labouheyre
    11. Ychoux

We have placed on this map the main towns on the Landes coast and the roads leading to them from these TER stops. This way, we know at which stop we have to get off to get to our locality.

Now, how to get from the train stop to our town? This is where buses come in. Bus lines connect the train stops with the main towns along the Landes coast. As you can see on the map of the regional bus network (Réseau de cars regionaux dans Les Landes), there are five lines covering the main urban centres:

    • Line 7 directly links Bayonne with Labenne, Capbreton and Soustons.
    • Line 44 links Dax with Castets, Léon, Vielle-St-Girons and Lit-et-Mixe.
    • Line 45 links Morcenx with St-Julien-en-Born and Contis Plage.
    • Line 13 links Labouheyre with Mimizan.
    • Line 11 links Ychoux with Parentis-en-Born, Biscarrosse y Sanguinet.
    • Line 14 links Parentis with Gujan-Mestras.
    • Line 46 links Parentis with Arcachon*.
    • Line 47 links Mont de Marsan with Arjuzanx y Mimizan*.

* Lines 44, 45, 46 and 47 operate only during the summer months.

Line 7 is very popular with Basque tourists travelling from the South Basque Country or even from North Basque Country, as it links Baiona (which is easily accessible from the border) with the most popular towns in Landes (Capbreton, Hossegor, Messages...).
