The unmissable places in Biarritz

Dec 25, 2017 Holiday in Biarritz

Do you have any travel plans for this year? If, during your stay, you want to change your habits, you will have so many choices because the landscapes of Biarritz are mainly rich in tourist heritage.

Biarritz is first of all the city that borders Bayonne. Walking under its arcades is a real delight with its shops that are built in wood and with ancient architecture. There, you can also benefit from a nice stroll along the Nive river, which serves the heart of the city. The houses located in the citadel almost appear in the waterfront ...

You will also find interesting vestiges such as the cathedral of Santa Maria and its cloister, both of which have a frontal appearance that greatly breathes the Roman epochs. Biarritz is among others a cultural center hosting two exciting museums that deserve to be visited. These are the Museum of Basque History and that of Leon Bonnat.

When you are in Biarritz, do not miss a moment to appreciate its neighborhood of Anglet which offers the most beautiful beaches of the region. Indeed, the latter are very festive and come alive during the summer to bring happiness to the visitors. For those who prefer tranquility, the protected bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz will bring you into a colorful, intimate and charming universe. The competition to extend its towel is less harsh especially as the sea is soft, ideal for families with children.

Do you like guided tours? Do this in a different way by embarking on the little Rhune train in order to discover the prestigious Mont de Biarritz. The Sare Caves are also wonderful sights for exploration sessions in one of the city's most mysterious sights. So as to bring happiness to your little ones, take them to discover the pine forest of the apes in Labenne, a zoo where the animals are exposed in freedom in a vast space naturally preserved.

Did you know that Biarritz is associated with some water sports? When you are traveling to this European paradise, do not deprive yourself of a surfing practice on the Basque coast or Hossegor in the Landes which offer a stormy sea with a beautiful and captivating color. Always in Pays de Basque you will find no less than 10 golf courses which are easy to access within a radius of 30 km, most of which are recognized internationally for their quality.
