Where to Stay

Biarritz is a fairly compact city, where the majority of visitors opt to stay close to the dramatic coastline. Much of the city’s most beautiful architecture, as well as the best restaurants, cafes and shopping areas, can be found on the small peninsula the juts out to the south of the beach. Plenty of great accommodation is on offer in the seafront area adjacent to the Grand Plage. Further to the north of central Biarritz are several quieter districts offering some beautiful places to stay; still close to the sandy beach and also within walking distance of the city’s two most popular golf courses. The neighbouring town of Bayonne, 15 minutes’ drive outside of Biarritz on the mouth of the L’adour River, also offers some wonderful accommodation options.

Things to Do

La Grand Plage rolls along several kilometers of fabulous coastline

As with most of Southern France’s towns and cities, the main attraction in Biarritz is the beach. Le Grand Plage rolls along several kilometres of coastline, from the city centre out to the countryside. It’s a great place for people watching, there is also a fantastic coastal trail which takes in many of the best sights: beginning at the lighthouse to the north, the trail snakes down the coast and past the Russian Orthodox Church and Casino Barriere. In recent years Biarritz has become one of Europe’s premier surfing destinations, so it’s a great place to take to the waves, with board rentals and lessons for all levels available right on the beach. Biarritz also hosts a world class aquarium with an interesting collection of sea life. The city also boasts an excellent collection of Asian art, at the Musee D’Art Asiatique.

Eating and Drinking

Biarritz has a lively party scene and a high number of Michelin starred restaurants

Biarritz’s food culture is similar to other the other cities of southern France: Today the city has a laid back feel, with the surfers bringing beach bars, barbecues and more with them. Biarritz’s decadent past is still evident, however, in the high number of Michelin starred restaurants and fine dining establishments that line many of the streets. If you’re looking for quality on a lower budget, try getting lunch at Les Halles Market down on the seafront. This is the place that supplies most of the high end restaurants in town, where you can get freshly caught oysters and other delicious seafood served with a glass of wine, for a fraction of the restaurant price. Biarritz also has a lively party scene, most nights of the summer season there’s something going on at the beach or inside one of the stylish bars that line the seafront. The Casino Barriere also doubles as a fashionable nightspot, where the drinks are surprisingly affordable.

Getting Around

The central area of Biarritz is small enough to explore on foot, the coastal path is the easiest way to do this, covering around 2km of the seafront.
