This is a charming French Basque town that has a lot offer, shops, dining and the beach. We spent the day there and enjoyed the food, sights and sounds. There are many hotels along the beach and streets made for meandering.

Buenas tardes Martin... Somos dos matrimonios que estaremos en Hondarribia mañana sábado, domingo y de regreso el lunes. Estamos pensando en pasar parte del domingo en Biarritz. El problema es que todavía no tenemos decidido a qué hora ir, si por la mañana, comer allí y regresar después de comer, o llegar a la hora de comer y pasar la tarde allí... ¿Qué nos recomiendas...? Entiendo que el domingo el Mercado está cerrado... la comida puede ser de picoteo, o algún menú turístico que no nos entretenga mucho tiempo ya que, como ves, no disponemos de él... Te agradecería que nos indiques qué cosas son imprescindibles de ver en Biarritz sin disponer de horarios. Gracias y un cordial saludo.
