Biarritz, The Basque Coast Out Of Season

A city on the Bay of Biscay on the Atlantic Coast of South Aquitaine in The Pyrenees-Atlantic and in The French Basque Country of South Western France. Surf Country, playground of Kings.

  • Basque delight in Turrets is everywhere
  • Cathedral Eglise Sainte Eugenie nestled on the bay
  • Walk out on to the Rocher de la Vierge

The place looks regal and the Basque delight in Turrets is everywhere. The Grande Plage is surrounded by the city with the Cathedral Eglise Sainte Eugenie nestled on the bay, keeping to a religious thought you can always walk out on to the Rocher de la Vierge. I recommend you visit after a night on the town. The sight of locals swimming in the Ocean is always a sign that people really live here.

Kind of how I felt when I took this photo

It is the surf capital of France and the breaks are good, people come from all over the world to surf here including California USA. The whole coast south has cool spots with fun restaurants on the beach where you can have a beer and plate of mussels after a day of riding those waves. For you Ocean lovers there is the Cite de L’Ocean et du Surf Museum which charts the life of this really cool town.

The night life has all you want. For guidance ask your hotel concierge and get a list of where to go first, then second and then finish. It has great food, bars and clubs to suit any need. Clubs do not open until late so if you want, pace yourself.
