We spent a fair few days on this beach and really enjoyed the ease for surfing and the great restaurant La Surf for lunch and dinner on the ocean.
Visiting on a drizzling autumn day, the beach was quiet save the surfers. The sand was nice (not rocky) and our kids enjoyed a spot of sand castle building. Its not a kiddie paddling beach due to the current but there is one sheltered cove nearby. Out of season (October was our visit), Biarritz was empty and very quiet. A... More
This is an amazing beach resort with many people and castles and steep coast line lining a narrow beach.Unfortunately we couldn't find anywhere to stop and enjoy the area but photos and memories still tell it is a lovely place.
The Cote des Basques is a beautiful place to stroll even on a rainy day. I did not come there to swim so I only enjoyed the scenery. If you are into surfing and spectacular waves, you are in the right place. Very classy and oldfashioned.

Before the tides change, when they are at the lows and coming back in this beach on the other side of Biarritz is magnificent. I took my eldest (9) and youngest (5) surfing and body surfing respectively. Whilst my eldest gave up on the full surfing, the sheer delight to catch a wave on a boogie-board was more than enough...

The sewage system can not handle the tourist crowds. When it rains the sewage system is unable to handle sewage and rainwater and the sewage is emptied out on Le Grand Plage! Due to the high levels of bacterial pollution bathing is often forbidden. Go else where! If I had known this before coming here I would have made other... More
The Cote des Basques is a beautiful place to stroll. We enjoyed seeing the multicolor umbrellas on the beach that added a touch of color to the beach.
