Surf’s Up

Biarritz and neighboring Anglet are a dream destination for keen surfers. The resort’s situation on the Atlantic coast means that the wave conditions are ideal for surfing or body boarding. Every summer there is a surfing festival which attracts thousands of people from all over the world, some to surf and some just to watch and join in the general festivities.

Glamour Seeker

If you prefer something a little less energetic, you may prefer to soak up the sun on the golden beaches or the atmosphere of the town at its stylish shops and restaurants. The plaza by the elegant Eglise Sainte Eugénie is the perfect place to relax after a hard day’s shopping. If you fancy your luck you could visit Biarritz’s glamorous Bellevue Casino, built in 1857.

Beyond Biarritz

If you can tear yourself away from the delights of Biarritz, a short drive south will bring you to the charming Basque town of St-Jean-de-Luz.
