What an amazing sight.

The bridge across to this stunning structure was a pleasure and a great photographic opportunity. I had to pass it by every day.

To stroll along the coast in Biarritz is a great pleasure and one will come by the Rocher de la Vierge which stands out a little further into the ocean. A great place to rest and watch the waves crush into the rocks and to adore the beautiful coastline.

Facing the ocean with the continent all behind you. Impressive. Do it by night, it's even better: a mysterious feeling of a kind of adventure

it has the most beautiful sunset view! it's perfect for the evening walk after dinner. Also you can sit by the sea watch the sunset and the surrounding rocks are quite amusing as well.

The walk to this island is a must do for Biaritz, very beautiful and awesome nature. Wonderful spot for climbing the rocks and rocky paths.

Gorgeous walking area--for families, solo traveler, couples, whomever. This is one of the most dramatic, gorgeous ocean settings we've seen in years of ocean travel. Huge rocks, waves splashing up against, a safe pier, more adventurous walking paths for those who seek, great photos, ocean spray. If you are nearby you must go.

This spot was originally part of Napoleon's plans to build a sea wall along the Port Vieux. Never completed. The Steel walk way out to this island outcropping was built by Eiffel. Very good views from here and it is free.
