“Lovely promenade walk.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

There is plenty of scope in Biarritz to walk and exercise. The 'cliff' walk is long with various stop-offs including to this statue. There is also a long wide beach shared between swimmers and surfers and a pleasant small town.

“Beautiful at night”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We sort of stumbled across the walk way out to the Rock on the first evening we were in Biarritz. It was such a lovely space (in Dublin it would have been full of teenagers drinking and the place would've been a mess!) so was really nice to see somewhere around 9/10pm that you could go out to and take a look back at the city and all the lights or look out along the coastline to all the other harbour towns/cities in the distance. Really loved it.

Reviewed September 16, 2013

The view walking up is awesome.I knew the sight was there as my partner had been before but not actually gone over the bridge to get a closer view.We went both on a night time and during the day....I am religious and I do would of course be drawn to her but honestly you are missing something if you do not go see this site! She can be seen alover Biarritz from the beaches bars alover....

“It is a statue at the end of a walkway. Get over it!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Seriously that is all that it is. Why are there so many people there? Ok it is nice and I can see the attraction on walking to the end of it to get a view of Biarritz but its not that great really.
