Activities Leisures



Coming to Lac du Der means taking full advantage of all that this natural area of water has to offer. There is swimming with the 6 beaches laid out for young and old but there are also boat trips and motorised water vehicle races, and not forgetting the ubiquitous angling. Along the 70 km of shoreline round the lake, there are numerous clubs, agencies and shops offering a wide range of services.

The comfort and safety of visitors remain our top priority. This is why there are lifeguards in attendance throughout the summer and the water is regularly tested.
