What to do on the Estuary?
Embark at Pauillac from May till the end of August to discover the largest Estuary in Western Europe and its islands (it is from here that La Fayette set sail for the Americas in 1777 !) www.pauillac-medoc.com
La Maréchale, Saint-christoly-de-médoc, Port of By, Goulée, Valeyrac and Richard
The estuary around Médoc hosts a dozen incredibly charming little harbours: (visit its lighthouse), and others. It is an opportunity to glimpse the famous carrelets, these large, square fishing nets that gave their name to a fishing technique typically used in the estuary and to the huts - on stilts – intended for this activity. This haphazard fishing technique is essentially used by hobby anglers (the nets are raised regularly and no bait is used).
