The salt-lake and its wooded island

The Port d'Albret natural salt water Lake is semi tidal, fed by the sea, but dammed with sluice gates to allow the new high tide in, but not out.

When the dam is opened to allow in a fresh tidal flow, the beaches on both sides of the estuary & dam are covered with fishermen to catch the new influx of fish being forced in with the tide (no fishing season for this type fishing).

The Lake has many activities, from the normal Beach activities, to fishing, Wind Surfing & Dingy Sailing.
