We visited during beautiful hot Spring weather. The beaches, the sea and the waves were just gorgeous.

All along the water’s edge the very various beaches were very different and very pretty. Some would not be accessible during high tide but during the low tide the sand is accessible. Be aware that there is at least one beach where women are topless.

I personally love coastal scenery and this is a beautiful and occasionally wild coastline. Biarritz is rightly famous for its beaches, but for me, the rocky parts of this place are even more spectacular.

Biarritz - the city of glamour and chic and you feel this immediately as soon as you reach there. By its style, architecture and location to the sea very much reminded Monaco. Luxury hotels and restaurants, high-end boutiques, etc. - everything is expensive and rich....More

You see Biarritz and you immediately understand why it was a favorite of royalty and remains one for the rich and famous. It is a beach area, but clad in a casual elegance that only gets gaudy here and there. Start with the high and...More

It’s an expansive beach with hard packed sand and magnificent rock formations that run the length of the shoreline. Whether you want to sun, stroll, surf, or walk along taking an endless number of scenic photographs, this beach is not to be missed.

Sorry for the late response. It will be very hot during the day but hoodie kind of night. Bring a spring suit if you're surfing, might be too cold for boardshorts. Have fun!!!
