Biarritz, the most popular coastal resort
With your airline ticket booked for Biarritz allow yourself an interlude to escape between the sea and the mountains at the heart of the Basque Country in a seaside resort appreciated as much by the surfers as by the amateurs of balneology.
Made famous by the European, princely families during the 19th century, preferred holiday location of the Empress Eugénie, spouse of Napoleon the Third, Biarritz still enjoys an international reputation today. A flight to Biarritz is an invitation to discover a popular and stylish resort, where the population quadruples every summer, reaching 100,000 inhabitants. The most touristic city in the Basque Country is idolized for its mild climate and its maritime facade. The Virgin's Rock, the villas on the seafront, the old port, the extensive beach, Saint Martin Point and the lighthouse are essential curiosities.
A trip to Biarritz is a dream getaway for surfers across the world. The quality and intensity of the waves, in winter or summer, has made this Basque Country city one of the best sites in the world for board sports. A stay in Biarritz also allows you to indulge in leisure, on the fine sand, savour the delights of thalassotherapy, visit the Museum of Chocolate, the City of the Ocean or enjoy the freshness of the botanical garden.
A stone's throw away from Biarritz, you can also dive into the madness of the Festival of Bayonne in July, the largest in France with 1.5 million participants every year !
