Took me way too many years to get here but boy was it worth the wait. We hopped a bus in San Sebastián Spain (also part of Basque Country) and in an hour we were dropped off up the hill from the “Centre Ville”. After a ten minute walk Downtown, the Atlantic Ocean with dozens of surfers and massive rock islands greeted our senses of sight, smell & hearing. We hiked along the coast to Notre Dame and beyond. Spectacular sums up this slice of Basque Coast...it is very Biarritzy in deed.
Wild and rugged coast line, the way it should be to get my attention. Bad weather, but not bad enough to make it even more interesting. Just a pity that the coastal road to Saint-Jean-de-Luz offers hardly any good views.
It is one of the many beaches for surfers in the French Basque Country but probably the most beautiful. The ocean is bringing its regular number of high waves and the view from the cliff above the beach is splendid. Take the opportunity to have a breakfast in the morning there or a coffee at the sunset
It's a nice walk next to the sea.
you should definately spend some time there to enjoy the view and may be watch the surfers.
It is very nice to walk and look at sea and beaches below from the roadway / path. But at night with all the street and area lighting it looks surreal
a fantastic place to come and holiday - les halles, fois gras, surfing, shopping, sun, rain, waves and fireworks
For walking, for surfing... not too good for swiming but excelent for families. One handicap: swimers only can acced to the water in a narrow area, surfers are the "owners" of the rest...
You can walk along the coast of the Biarritz for about half mile or so, and everywhere is beautiful and dramatic. Amazing rock formations, surf, sunsets... beautiful.
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
