Things to Do in Biarritz

Basque Coast Beach
Where golden sands meet the dark blue Atlantic, this beach is overlooked by steep cliffs and chic resorts. The long stretch of coast has been beloved by European royalty since the 1800s, and nowadays it’s a premier spot for surfing and sunbathing. After a day in the waves, the little coastal bars are perfect for catching sunsets.
Fishing Port in Biarritz
Fishermen’s Port is a true icon of Biarritz. Nestled by a small cove in the Old Town, this 19th-century harbour is a lovely spot to ramble around. You can enjoy an al fresco seafood feast while gazing at the moored boats and “crampottes” – houses built into the rocks – that line the shore. If you’re lucky enough to be here for Bastille Day, it’s also prime fireworks-watching territory.
Petit Train de La Rhune
The Petit Train de La Rhune is a rickety, vintage mining train that chugs up the 823-metre summit of La Rhune. Hop on for the 35-minute ride up the steep mountainside, where wild Pottok ponies and red-head sheep roam. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the Basque Country, the Atlantic Coast and the Pyrenees shimmering in the distance.

Biarritz is a lovely place to visit, very convenient en route to Spain. Our accommodation this time was very disappointing as we usually stay in the Camponile Hotel which is very clean and comfortable . More money , but worth it.

This city has a very warm ambiance, excellent shopping and restaurants. The impression I got was that people in the service sector give SERVICE, with a smile. Most people we met gave the impression of being proud of their city but still wanted to improve it. A great attitude.

Biarritz is a beautiful city with a great beach! Nothing nicer than watch the sun set with a glass of wine in the evening👍 Lovely coastal walks

Pretty and dog friendly. Some excellent restaurants but generally rather expensive. By far the best restaurant was Chez Albert - delicious food and wine and friendly fast service.

Recommended in Biarritz

Seeing the opulence of the palace that Napoleon built for Josephine and learning about the British and their past and present with Biarritz.

Aside from the Galleried Lafayette, I can't recall any brand name stores. The charming streets are full of small boutiques.

Interesting sights and places to visit. Nice shops and wonderful cafes and restaurants

Sea quite rough but lovely for sunbathing and relaxing

The Albert and langoustines!

Impressed, love to return

Because it can!!!

Just watching
