BIARRITZ PAYS BASQUE’S TOP FRIENDLY FAMILY BEACHES

This beach is on the southernmost part of the coast and is the last beach in France before the Spanish border. The atmosphere is friendly, without pretence. You will share the beach with Spanish tourists who are frequent visitors here. The gentle slope means you can walk far out to sea, good news for your small children.

Three sea walls protect this stretch of sand from the waves; the beach provides totally safe bathing for the whole family. You won’t know which way to look as the landscapes are rich and varied: there is a fortress, a belvedere, traditional architecture and the majestic Atlantic Ocean. So, get comfortable and soak up the Basque atmosphere!

This small cove is suitable for children and its size will certainly appeal to them. It is protected from the wind and the swell so you can let them go in the water without worry. Don’t miss the unusual organisation of the port by walking through its covered passageways: a reminder of its historical link to whale-hunting.
