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

What an amazing beach. Have never been to the atlantic side of Spain/France before, but will definately come back. Due to a lot of rain the are is green and fresh. And the food is unbelievable! The difference betweeen ebb and tide must be 5-6 meters!!

Found this to be the best place to visit in Biarritz! A perfect place to shoot pics! Very scenic views. Just that you would find it difficult to have solo pics given the number of people coming to get clicked!

Good for a longer walk and need to bee seen more than once as the ocean can totally cover the beach and then the view seems more impressive. Often some festivals or events are organised at this side.

Check the tide table or there may be no beach left for the kids. Quite narrow strip of beach. Very busy on the weekends. Good access via steps.

You cross an old bridge to access the little tree-lined hill with benches at the top and observation binoculars to survey the lighthouse and Rocher. The day we went the benches had just been painted so were roped off! It was also funny to watch people getting wet as the tide came in very quickly!

Lovely walk from Rue du Vieux-Port to Lighthouse, you can spend most of the day going there & back, lovely scenery, beaches, restaurants & benches all the way, great way to spend a sunny day.

We were a little nervous crossing what looks like an ancient bridge about to collapse, but shouldn't have worried. It felt rock steady and took us to an enchanting little hill with great views back to Biarritz (photo ops all round) - close by are numerous very pretty buildings.

We walked over the stone bridge to take photographs from the small garden area on the other side. Nice views.
