Great views and a comfortable park greet you at the lighthouse at Barritz. Seabirds and fishing boat mill around an lend color and sound to the scene. A great place to stop and view the town and historical lighthouse.

A wonderful place to stop and walk around to enjoy the stunning coastal views of this gorgeous area. It's nice to get out; stretch your legs and breathe the fresh sea air. The lighthouse is surrounded with dramatic old tamarisk trees and we found several...More

Something to do in if in town with time to kill (all too likely in Biarritz). Only 10 people at a time so maybe 15min wait - though my actual visit was less than that.
