Saw from a distance at nighttime from the grand plage- it’s impressive. In short ch a modern technological era it gives a sense of relying on the old way of doing things.

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.

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.

Lovely walk from the centre. Good way to see Biarritz from a different angle. Friendly café and good toilets. Loved the 'walk on' sundial - try it!

I managed the steps to the top quite easily but found it very high! Had a quick look and returned to the bottom! Well worth it though. The area around the lighthouse is very nice and peaceful. There’s a cafe there and plenty of seating...More
