The beach is small and always full of people. This are the cons. But you get great waves and cool people to observe. You are also not far away from the town, if you need something or get hungry. I love this beach!

Visited Biarritz in December so could not use the full potential of the beach but the views of the ocean are breathtaking, could watch the waves for ever. Beautiful promenade edged with spas, cafes and restaurants. Plenty of underground parking nearby.
