Biarritz is a lovely town on the southern, western coast of France. It was once a haven for surfers, and still has the waves, but has turned into a tourist mecca during the summer months. There is not many attractions in the city itself, thats what makes it such a great beach destination!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Beach and Coastal Scenery
  • Cons:WAY too many people
  • In a nutshell:Don't expect to be alone on the great beaches...

    A very interesting overview of the beach life of Biarritz! And hey, when your back is to the wall, there is nothing wrong with wine in a plastic cup!

    Queen Victoria loved it, as did Edward VIII who played golf here before & after his abdication. It wasn't until that floozy Brigitte Bardot discovered St. Tropez that Biarritz lost its star-studded status! Love the wine in a plastic cup at sunset pic! ;-)

    I went through Biarritz once- on a night train from Hendaye to Paris, so I didn't see much. Another reason why the Azure Coast is more popular is because the waters are warmer over there. No jet stream warms France's Atlantic Coast.
