Put on your walking shoes and take the challenge of going up all the stairs in one haul. Do not forget to bring your camera for the end. Lots of day tourists never make it up to the top for the views.

A truly "epic" place. Sitting on the side of a cliff with winding stairs, you can look down on the raw Atlantic ocean in all its glory. I saw it at a very windy time, where it was not particularly welcoming. The waves were massive, and the wind blew the chop everywhere. Nonetheless it was beautiful and completely amazing. Will be back.

We had a one night stopover and explored Biarritz a little during the day, it is a charming, upmarket seaside resort with ample restaurants, hotels and views.

The sewage system can not handle the tourist crowds. When it rains the sewage system is unable to handle sewage and rainwater and the sewage is emptied out on Le Grand Plage! Due to the high levels of bacterial pollution bathing is often forbidden. Go else where! If I had known this before coming here I would have made other plans for a beach vacation!!

One of my favorites spots in France, the Basque country has amazing food, a friendly and welcoming culture and of course beauitiful nature. The beaches are famous for the surf spots and you can get the best of both worlds from luxury pampering to backpack adventure.

Lets b clear. I like the beach. I live there. But travellers award and all that stuff? Waves arent as good as in hossegor or anglet, a few km north, if you wanna surf.
Beach is only possible at low tide, prefer the milady beach, as beautiful, 1 km south if u wanna relax more than a few hours.
Well, i dont really recommend tourists to go to the cote des basques, but south or north youll find amazing beaches, depending on what u want!

My favorites are the Milady and Marbella. The rest are so beautiful but not as beautiful and as these two.
The sand is so soft, the water is so clean and the area is so large it cannot get crowded.
Defiantly an all time favorite spot that carries lots of memories that will sure last till my 90s if I ever reached that.

Absolutely beautiful place to visit. Very interesting walkway along the rocky coast. Beautiful views. Fabulous for photography.

The tides here are unexpectedly large. Allow some very unusual transformations

Whilst the area around Biarritz is rather enchanting, I cannot generally say the sans about the town. It's covered in graffiti, rather dirty and danegerous.

If you see Biarritz you'll never forget it, you'll remember it for ever in your life, no metter how many other places you'll visit in the rest of your life Biarritz and the Cote des Basque always call you back.
Fantatisc beach with amazing waves the dream of all the surfers, amazing town to visit and a great atmosphere.
A lot of good restaurant and the beach just one step from the city center do the rest.

I visited Biarritz several times and I'll be back soon, you own me.

I suggest you to go the Plage de les Cavaliers, just a couple of minute out of the town next to Anglet, amazing place.
