The port of Betey was dug in 1932 on the mouth of the stream of the same name, it was then exclusively dedicated to oyster farming. In 1968, it was fitted out to become the marina of Andernos-les-Bains and accommodates 151 boats. To its left is Bétey beach. It is bordered by a wooded park (Betey dune) with a playground for children.
Near the old cemetery, springs up in winter, a "rusty" source at the edge of which were discovered traces of a prehistoric habitat. Walking along its banks allows you to discover remarkable flora and fauna: royal fern and pond turtle, among others....

The Balades à Roulettes® (BR®) are short, quiet walks, with a stroller or a small bicycle, or adapted for people with reduced mobility (in a wheelchair), offered by the French Hiking Federation of the Gironde.
