The walk to get there was along the ocean and views from the base were spectacular with Biarritz skyline to one side and ocean to the other. I did not brave stairs to get to the top. It cost only 3 euros, but someone would have to pay me 300 for me to climb all these stairs.

Possibly the best view form the best city in the world. I fully intend to come back there and live the rest of my life, looking at the ocean in peace....

Construction is ok. I have seen other phares which are better but this has a great walk to get there.

Cafes, beaches, clean warm waters and sun. What’s not to like?
Worth visiting the market, which has original items of quality for sale. There’s an “in between” beach great for swimming that protected from waves.

Nice view of the Biarritz beach and to the North you can see the very wide beaches which are a surfing paradise. There is a little bar next in the park and if you don't want to walk up there or back to the city, you can use the free shuttle.

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 fee we were charged. I have a slight issue with heights but was able to handle a brief circuit and enjoy the vantage point without too much unease before heading back down. The view is beautiful even from the hilltop park locale of the lighthouse, so the long walk up to this spot is recommended, whether the steps are climbed or not.

The lighthouse is located in a park on a point. It is 120 feet tall but on a cliff already 150 feet above the water. A beautiful place to watch the sunset.

If you are heavy smoker I do not recommend this for you :D Bot otherwise it has a beautiful view it closes at 12:00 but opens 14:00 as I found out when I got there but there is a small restaurant next to it so you can kill some time there. Also there are a lots of beautiful places to take a picture on a way there from city centre.
It has a 284 steps and entrance cost 2.5 € ,sometimes there might be a long line but it is well worth the waiting.

We only called on out last morning and on our way home to see the view! It was well worth the visit, easy to get to and park and, I am sure that the walk up the steps in the lighthouse are worth the effort but, I didn't do it. I wanted to see the view of the bay and, even though it was quite early and still a little misty, I am so glad that we stopped, the views of the bay and the 'posh' houses and hotels surrounding it are stunning. The icing on the cake for me was the brilliant pics I got of the crashing tide on the steep rocks and the birds out on a large outcrop. Recommended
