This is our closest port, only five minutes’ drive away. It is very peaceful and quiet little port with a large lock. You can walk or cycle along the paths out to the wetlands of the Gironde Estuary. There is a look out point on the right bank of the port, with a small raised platform. The port has an active sailing school which offers sailing lessons and also trips out on to the Gironde on either of the schools two sailing boats. Port Maubert is also home to the well-known restaurant L’Ecluse which specialises in fresh seafood and fish dishes and also hosts monthly live music concerts. For fresh fish caught in the Gironde and artisanale products visit Delice de Maubert the little shop next to L’Ecluse.
