Beautiful area full of wonderful and friendly people. Definitely worth spending a few days to enjoy. Going the first two weeks of June will help you miss the large crowds that start rolling in later in the month. There is a 'Wheels and Waves' festival,...More

Beautiful beaches with amazing sunsets. Great if you want to surf but you would get better value for money at one of the resorts further south. The one way system makes driving tricky and parking is not easy either. It is an expensive town, buy...More

I had no idea what to expect and was very positively surprised about the geography of the coast, the city of Biarritz. Great location, the city offers high class service in every respect (touristic, welcome, tidiness ). I highly recommend!

Went to Biarritz in September and the weather was still glorious. I can readily see why this beach is in the top 25 beaches of the world as it is truly spectacular. This is the Newquay of the continent. Spent many a hour sitting up...More

Sorry for the late response. It will be very hot during the day but hoodie kind of night. Bring a spring suit if you're surfing, might be too cold for boardshorts. Have fun!!!
Hello. Can somebody tell me if you can swim here? How is the water in August? I don't like cold water, is it really cold? What about inside the water. Are there stones or sand. Thank you very much.

Hi I was here 3 weeks ago. Locals were swimming in. 15C water. Or surfers in surf suites. It should definitely be warmer in August. In big, open beaches there are big waves (surfers' paradise), but amongst the many hidden... More
Is it possible to travel to Biarritz from Bordeaux by public transport? How long does the trip take? Is it worth doing in May, 2017? Any other suggestions for day trips from Bordeaux are welcome. We will not have a car.
