“Seagulls Show No Respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

The gulls perch on top of the Virgin's head, but that shouldn't deter you from enjoying this finale to the Cote des Basques. The views are stunning and the setting is as well. This is the point where you can feel justified to turn around and head back into the center of town after a hike well done.

“Sunset walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2015

Lovely walk in the evening as the sun is setting, you are pretty far out into the ocean and the waves can be pretty ferocious. But it's worth it for the holiday snaps. Defiantly advise anyone to do this and then follow the coast walk into the grand plaige

“ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2015

The walk along the coast to go and see it, coming from the main beach, is fine. The virgo statue is placed on a rock.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2015

It's a great view of the rocks and the sea, but the virgin it self, it's nothing special. Walking around the place is a pleasure!
