Biarritz is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. That’s why locals often call the city “the Queen of the Basque country”. What sets Biarritz apart from the hundreds of other beautiful European coastal hot spots is that its Beauty and charm are far from skin deep, as the city is steeped in rich culture and historical relevance with particular reference to the surfing world. It was actually on these very beaches that the first waves in Europe were surfed, when a Californian filmmaker called for his surfboard to be shipped out all the way to France after seeing the beauty and the waves on offer. Since then this city has been on an even keel of surf and sophistication. Where else do you find a bond like casino on the beach serving up trendy cocktails as its patrons watch over the surfers and waves almost lapping up to the baccarat table.
The best thing about our Biarritz Day Away is that there is so much to see and do, so much of this chic town to sample that will cost you next to nothing. We start our tour at the infamous lighthouse with panoramic views across the city and neighbouring beaches. Our walking tour will take you along the pristine coastline, across pedestrian bridges to tiny islands, among art installations and statues, through stained glass churches past our favorite ice cream parlours and will certainly end at a lively watering hole usually accompanied with live music. Et voilla!
In Moliets, the surf camp arrival day is Saturdays when we run surf camp shuttles to and from Biarritz airport, Biarritz train station and Dax train station, San Sébastian and Bordeaux:
