Lovely beach, not as crowded as Grande Plage, but a hell of a hike down to it. The food prices down there are extortionate, so take your own. By noon the tide is right up and you have to get off....it'll only recede by approx 4pm at the earliest but the sand will still be very wet to sit on.... More

I was there 10 years ago and it was wow. badly surprised when i was there 2 weeks ago. No trace of chic and glory. Crowded, quality of the city has changed negatively.

Biarritz is a nice city - there are calm districts and wild ones, luxurious places and democratic ones :) And the ocean, it is tremendous!

Several beaches i the city Biarritz to choose from, pebble to sand. Fun waves for the whole family to play in. GET A SURF LESSION! Really fun, and not as difficult as you think.

Not to be missed really - an easy urban coastal walk, with a little up-and-down, between headlands and the old port. It's extremely varied and interesting, only taking an hour or so depending on how many stops you make. Possible to extend to the lighthouse for different views of Biarritz town. Good for everyone in the family if they can... More

Biarritz is a picturesque city. Great for low wave surfing. Good for walking. Fresh air and nice Sandy beaches. We stayed for 6 days at La Grand Large. Very comfortable. Centrally located. Great ocean views.

In cotes of Basques you have an incredible view of the Biarritz beach and can see the other side of the city: the historic center. A lovely beach full of nature and lookouts with beautiful views of the sea.

Very scenic coast, and pretty beaches, some of the best anywhere in the world! The tides vary a huge amount, so what is covered with sea water one part of the day - give it 6+ hours and you see an entirely different terrain - with lots of potholes that catch the fish/crabs... Within a short walk there are approx... More
