A great path to walk to this statue on the rugged rocks. Wide and even path, fun destination, many great views. Not too challenging, just right!

It is lovely for a leisurely walk there is a lovely bar at the beginning of the pier and you can also hop on the tourist train from here too. Great views of the town from here.

This is a great place to visit for a great view of Biarritz. Be careful, the sea can be a bit rough around here and we saw one man getting unexpectedly soaked by the sea,
