FIFPAN IN MIMIZAN

Mimizan is a seaside resort with a population of about 7,000 people.

The resort is well-known for its immense beaches and is popular with tourists. It offers a perfect combination of family atmosphere, environmental friendliness and the possibility of practising a wide range of sports.

On this basis, we believe that Mimizan, which also has a cinema-theatre (Le Parnasse), with a large hall adjacent (Le Forum), is an ideal location to host an event such as FIFPAN.

Located on the Landes coast 87 km south-west of Bordeaux.

It is known as “Pearl of the Côte d’Argent”.

6 miles of fine sand beaches, and 6 supervised beaches, some of which are open from May to mid-September.

Numerous activities are available: beach volleyball, surfing, bodyboarding, jet ski, kitesurfing, waveski, landsailing or simply sunbathing and relaxing.
