[ Things to do ]
Biarritz is mainly famous for its coast. The beaches are excellent and this is a major surf resort. The main beach, Grand Plage, gets very crowded, but there is also a long surfers' beach on the Boulevard du Prince de Galles, called "Cote des Basques", that has almost no sand at high tide, but is superb at low tide. The surf beaches at Anglet are easily accessible by bus, and surfboards that aren't too big are allowed on the local buses in the summer at least. There is a small beach by the Esplanade du Porte Vieux that is good for swimming when the surfer's beach is closed.
There many things to visit if the weather gets rainy: there is the church of Sainte Eugenie, the lighthouse (about 2€), a Russian Orthodox church, museums like the Museum of Chocolate (6€ adults) or the Museum of the Sea (entrance about €6) which has been greatly improved the last years (check (website hidden)).

We had a lovely stay in Biarritz made all the more enjoyable by the warm welcoming hospitality we received from Unai and his family. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. It is in a lovely part of town with all amenities close by, especially the daily food market which is ideal for the breakfast run, the fresh croissants are irresistible! Unai gave us a number of food recommendations which were delightful! We would visit again and highly recommend a stay in this lovely apartment.
