We checked out Labenne thinking we might stay a few nights. The further we drove down the beach road the more we realised this was the land of family campsites. The impressive Aqua park, monkey climbing nets, smooth wide cycle paths perfect for wheelies all amounted to a place ideal and over run with kids. Not much of interest unless, like Duncan, wheelies are your thing…

The beach car park was our home for the night, no one bothered us despite being the only camper van staying. To fill the time we got drunk and used the WW2 beach bunkers as climbing frames, naturally discovering our inner child.

Sadly with the surf being flat we weren't able to witness Labenne's full appeal. The morning after it was time to find some fellow twenty something's, Biarritz was up next.
