[ 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)).

This is a great apartment, very large and comfortable in an excellent location. Unai was very helpful and easy to deal with.
Unai has been a great host during our stay in Biarritz. The flat was as described and in a great condition, we even had Chromecast and were therefore able to use our Netflix account in the evenings. Unai was very welcoming and provided us with a lot of information (incl. a map) when we arrived and was also very responsive throughout the entire stay. The location was ideal as the flat is only a few minutes away from the grande plage, les halles (food market) and local restaurants & bars. We will definitely stay here again and can highly recommend this place for couples and families. Thanks Unai!
Accueil chaleureux d'un ai. L'appartement est très bien situé, porchies des halles. Il est vaste et lumineux malgré sa situation en sous-sol. Cette appartement est très bien pour découvrir Biarritz.
Appartement très bien situé à 10 minutes à pied du bord de mer. Très propre et très bien équipé.
Notre hôte nous a très bien accueilli. Adresse à retenir.
Malgré notre courte rencontre Unai fut très sympathique. Très disponible et bonne communication. L'emplacement de l'appartement est idéal pour une visite de la ville à pied. Malgré l'absence de stationnement, il est relativement facile d'en trouver un près de la maison. Sinon ayez quelques pièces de monnaie en poche pour le parcomètre. Appartement conforme à la description est parfait pour passer un bon moment.
