  • This is a ride to do it walking, above all towards the sunset to enjoy the incredible view and Biarritz coastline.

  • The beach is nonexistent at high tide, but as soon as the ocean withdrew the beach stretches up to Ilbaritz! A spot that is sought after by surfers. The best place for a drink admiring the sunset. Come walk, in summer it is virtually impossible to find a parking spot. The descent under the Tamarisk is nice. From the parking overlooking the beach is also very beautiful. The free shuttle from Biarritz can take you there.

  • Whatever the weather, it's always great. The landscape changes with the tides, the waves, the Sun or clouds.
