Pura Vida Lodge

The Pura Vida Lodge is located in a green surrounding on a quiet spot in Mimizan, France. The beach is only five minutes away. Behind the lodge there is a pretty river, which also has it’s own beach. Here we give the yoga and SUP lessons.


Surfing in Mimizan

Mimizan is a well-known surf spot in the southwest of France right on the Atlantic Ocean. Europe’s most beautiful waves roll in here all year round. Mimizan is the perfect spot for beginners because the waves break on sandbars just offshore. But also more advanced surfers will enjoy themselves in the green waves further outside. Even in the high-season we surf beautiful waves without a busy crowd. With our bikes we can quickly cycle to a surfspot in beautiful nature. One of those spots where you can easily have one of those “moments of total happiness”; does that sound familiar?

Nightlife in Mimizan

Also in the evening Mimizan is alive: On the boulevard (and in the village) you can find many cozy bars. There is something for everyone; a wine bar where you can drink a nice wine, a pub with all your favorite beers on the tap and, of course, the Pura Vida Bar where you can go for a dance, but also to watch a relaxed surf movie. Or do you just want to have a little drink sitting in the dunes while the sun goes down? It is all possible!
