About Biarritz

France’s quintessential beach break resort

From French Royalty to the modern movie stardom, Biarritz is well established as the classically styled French beach resort groomed to perfection. Despite earning a strong following of regular tourists this sun-kissed beach resort still retains heaps of personal character as well as glamour, with independent boutique stores, family-run gourmet restaurants and an awe-inspiring beach never far away.

AIRLINEDEPARTRETURNPRICE (per person)

Playground to the European jet set and France’s quintessential beach break resort, Biarritz is synonymous with glitz and glamour. It first became popular among the French royals and their court back in the 19th century, and some of the best hotels hark back to the town’s grand old heyday. Luxurious L’Hôtel du Palais (1 avenue de l'Impératrice), overlooking the sea, is still the definitive place to stay, but don’t overlook the modern yet spectacular Sofitel Biarritz Le Miramar Thalassa (13 rue Louison Bobet) with its state-of-the-art thalassotherapy centre. If you’re working to a tighter budget, Hotel de Biarritz (3 rue Grangier) is a stylish but more basic option.

Biarritz is great for finding unique stores thanks to a shopping scene that has rejected a descent into traditional seaside tackiness, with superb boutiques, patisseries and chocolatiers on offer. For its notable nougats and other delicious treats head to Pariès (1 place Bellevue), and for the Basque speciality of espadrilles Pare Gabia (18 rue Mazagran) is a well-priced winner. Surf style pervades the streets of the city, but for something more upmarket try 64 (16 rue Gambetta).

Simple yet effective is the theme with Basque cuisine. For gourmet perfection try L’Atelier (18 rue de la Bergerie) or L’Impertinent (5 rue d’Alsace), although Biarritz is home to plenty of excellent mid-range restaurants. Head to the vibrant Old Town and L’Instant (4 rue du Port Vieux) for a great atmosphere and tasty seafood, or Restaurant Philippe (30 avenue du Lac Marion) for a daring twist on Basque cuisine courtesy of Ducasse-trained chef Philippe Lafargue.
