Saw from a distance at nighttime from the grand plage- it’s impressive. In short ch a modern technological era it gives a sense of relying on the old way of doing things.

The lighthouse park is really nice, there’s also a small cafe/bar there with moderate pricing. You can also climb down the stairs onto a cliff type rock and it offers great views on Biarritz and ocean.

Great views and a comfortable park greet you at the lighthouse at Barritz. Seabirds and fishing boat mill around an lend color and sound to the scene. A great place to stop and view the town and historical lighthouse.

Lovely walk from the centre. Good way to see Biarritz from a different angle. Friendly café and good toilets. Loved the 'walk on' sundial - try it!

We decided to walk from the town along the promenade to the lighthouse not for the infirm as there are lots of steps but if your reasonably fit even a 60 y.o. Can do it. Worth it as views back to the town and beaches...More

The trek up the stairs is taxing and very narrow at the top. But once you step outside the panoramic view up top is stunning, with dramatic vista of coastline not seen otherwise visible in both directions. Well worth the effort and the small entry...More
