Biarritz is 25 minutes away from the campsite.

Biarritz is the ideal family destination in all seasons.

Young and old alike can enjoy a wide range of activities, including long walks on the beach along the Basque coast, where surfing first began in France. Here, there are exceptional landscapes with views over the Spanish coast, beautiful cliffs, and a chance to enjoy a ride in the little tourist train and a whole host of museums.

Rocher de la Vierge

Since 1864 “the Virgin’s Rock” has commemorated the miraculous return of Biarritz whalers who had been caught in a storm. Near the rock you can also admire the diversity and captivating beauty of the underwater world during a visit to the Sea Museum.

The Biarritz lighthouse

It stands on the Ponte Saint Martin cliff, which seems to move forward into the sea. The site is a natural barrier between the sandy coast of the Landes region and the rocky shores of the Basque country. 44 metres high, the white tower stands south of the Adour estuary, signalling the nearby port of Bayonne. It looks down over all the town of Biarritz.

The Old Port

This small beach in a rocky bay is sheltered from the wind and waves. It is a big hit with families with young children. The sea here is generally calm with ideal conditions for a swim.

On the Port des Pécheurs quay, there are several little restaurants serving fresh fish. We recommend Chez Albert, a restaurant with a terrace and dishes exclusively based on wild fish from the St Jean de Luz market.

City centre

The Basque country is a land of gastronomy and the home of many traditional and tasty specialities.

Treat your taste buds at Maison Henriet and Maison Pariès, chocolate-makers that are pillars of good taste in the region. Much appreciated locally.

Come and visit the trendy shops, do some chic window shopping or pick up a great deal. Clothes, shoes, accessories and jewellery for all tastes.
