Overview of Biarritz

Boasting 6km of white sandy beaches that provide a constant draw for surfers and holidaymakers, Biarritz has long been one of southern France’s most popular seaside destinations. It’s undeniably less flash than the Côte d'Azur, and yet its high proportion of art deco and belle époque buildings ensure the city retains an understated sense of glamour that adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your holiday. Visit in the summer and enjoy the town coming to life with tourists, surfers and locals alike flocking to the beaches and parks and enjoying al fresco dining in the sun. However winter visits are also well worth considering, with less people to compete with you can enjoy the dining scene’s spoils, museums and beaches without the crowds or particularly cold temperatures.

Restaurants and nightlife in Biarritz

Thanks to its coastal location and influences from the Basque region, there’s no shortage of fine dining establishments in Biarritz. If you’re after a well-priced luncheon with beachside views then make your way to The Restaurant-Café des Bains de Minuit, whilst The Port des Pêcheurs is the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely dinner by the water. Other highlights include Restaurant le Pim'pi for gloriously authentic bistro style dining and Chez Albert for the freshest seafood and fish dishes. If dinner’s got you in the mood to enjoy Biarritz’s buzzing nightlife then why not don your dancing shoes and get the part started at any one of the beachfront bars such as Café O or The Ventilo Café for cocktails and dancing?

Shopping in Biarritz

Despite its relatively compact size, Biarritz provides a healthy dose of retail therapy intermingled with the glossy cafes and stylish bistros that offer welcome respite for tired feet. If you’re after high street brands and big name stores then make your way to Place Clemenceau in the centre of Biarritz or the elegant Rue Mazagran. If it’s an authentic souvenir you’re after then pick up a pair of espadrilles from any one of the touristy shops that punctuate the town’s streets, whilst surfers who want to update their gear will find plenty of shops selling boards and clothing along the Grand Plage Beach and Place du Port Vieux. Finally, if you’re planning a picnic with a difference we’d recommend heading to the indoor market at Les Halles, where you’ll find speciality curd sheep’s milk authentic to the region, not to mention a whole host of fresh meats, cheeses and vegetables.
