A wish to come back

A very nice place both for the parents and the kids. Surf school. Good food. Beautiful evenings. In August overcrowded. Difficult to find spare car-parking.

La Côte des Basques in Biarritz is a wonderful place to watch the waves crashing relentlessly on the rocks. The mist flies in the air as the wind seems to keep blowing in my face, my hair all over the place. The wonderful smell of the Atlantic ocean lets you know the water is cold. The cliffs and rocks are... More

I am not a big fan of Biarritz - I have been there twice - one by choice and on the second occasion just passing through. It is pretensious, over-rated and way over-priced

Numerous different beaches to choose from by day and fresh seafood and/or pintxo locales by night. Good selection of shops, ice cream parlors and activities in summer. Solid accommodations and friendly locals make for a great summer vacation spot!

Wonderful promenade, especially at dusk when all people come out for a stroll and to watch the sunset. Magical and very romantic.

A lovely clean beach! If you are interested in surfing you will love it! We paid 40 euros for an hour and a half tuition, the instructors were really positive and friendly! When the rain sets in you can relax in the bar de la Côte until it passes! Then everyone heads straight to the beach again! It's great!

My favorites are the Milady and Marbella. The rest are so beautiful but not as beautiful and as these two. The sand is so soft, the water is so clean and the area is so large it cannot get crowded. Defiantly an all time favorite spot that carries lots of memories that will sure last till my 90s if I... More

As we left Spain we headed for the beaches starting in the South of France. The Cote des Basques is as great an example of what I'd heard of as anywhere can get. We were at the beaches in windy, rainy days as well as sunny calm days. We watched the high tides when there is no beach and the... More
