Cycling, forest hikes, horseback rides, waterskiing, windsurfing... There’s so much to do in this magical town. But the local activity is fishing for wedge clams ("pignons")! Or “pigoune” fishing, as the locals say. Pick up a bucket and head to the shore at low tide. Wedge clams are little shellfish, buried a few inches underneath the sand, which taste good fried or in a salad.
