The sandy beach in Biscarosse highly recommended for people who love a clean beach and beautiful sea. Very high waves (good for surfing) or body boarding or just for fun. Slightly less suitable for smaller children.

This was a great beach me and my family really enjoyed. The waves are really good for surfing and body boarding, and just playing in. The sand is not at all stony or uncomfortable to sit on. We have really enjoyed going to the beach!

One of the biggest and best sandy beaches and also fantastic for any type of surfing. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.

Found parking on North Beach no problem. Be careful if you have children or your not a strong swimmer as the sea here can be very dangerous. Huge waves and big tides when we were there but it can be like a mill pond. Overall...More

Great surfing beach for all levels, plus wonderful sand for castles! Even the waves are gentle enough at times for normal swimming. What’s not to like?

One of my favourite places in France. Surfs always good, resurants have good food and the sun seems to shine there more than anywhere else in France. There's plenty of places to stay from campsites, apartments and hotels. If you do surf do not go...More

We pulled up at a campsite in a pine forest, wandered down a track towards the sea and was completely wowed by the beach, it’s so lovely, pretty quiet too. It’s so nice that we stayed an extra night, highly recommend

Dogs were not allowed at the beach where we were, maybe a different stretch.
