  • Amateur photos of the ocean, this is the place to be! And this despite a failing weather during our stay in Biarritz.

  • Go walk to the beach from the casino and climb to the Lighthouse is a nice walk leaving time to admire the panorama and the beautiful ocean in all weather.

  • I wanted this day climb up the lighthouse, but it is closed for displayed: too much wind to open. Indeed the weather shows between 25 and 50 mph winds. You soon realize there are those who want to spend the weekend elsewhere than at the lighthouse. As said a very disappointed foreign tourist, if he was at sea, we could understand put here? Unfortunately I found this kind of incident typically french.

  • 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.
