The best view in Biarritz, in my opinion is from the top of the Cote des Basques. Amazing atmosphere:)

The truth is that the Basque Country Coast is amazing and really beautiful. I highly recommend this area to everyone who wants to eat fresh, drink fresh and see fresh views

You should stop at la cote des basques. If you are driving, everything is very near from San Sebastian. 1st Stop: Saint Jean de Luz. 2nd Stop: Biarritz. 3-4 Hours in each City is more than enough. Pays Basque, it's really... More
