  • The Lighthouse is very pretty and mythical. There was fog making it look like a paradise. The weather was great and long distances could be seen from the other side of the sea, where there was fog.

  • The ocean, the waves, the majestic hotel, the casino, the houses and palaces, the rock of the Virgin in the starry night and the lights of the city are Biarritz, one of the most beautiful cities in France. This beautiful lighthouse and its garden you can stroll along the coast and discover a large part of the city! A breath of fresh air!

  • The Lighthouse is another of the attractions of the city. It is in the middle of a concourse that invites you to walk. Is it easy to reach by car and offers views of the coast. On a clear day, the panorama is impressive. I recommend going to Anglet to see the sunset with the lighthouse in the background.

  • 360-degree view from the top was well worth the effort to get all the way up there. Affordable too, especially in the off season. If you're up for an even bigger workout, walk uphill from the town!
  • A place not to be missed. For lovers take the stairs that go up right at the entrance of the parking lot... For walkers take the path on the left at the entrance of the parking lot.
