A trip to the lighthouse is worthwhile, you get a great view of the Biarritz coast line. You can walk there from the city center or go by car.

The lighthouse park is really nice, there’s also a small cafe/bar there with moderate pricing. You can also climb down the stairs onto a cliff type rock and it offers great views on Biarritz and ocean.
