Biarritz is surfer’s paradise

Biarritz with its lovely rocky beaches is a surfer’s paradise. It’s popular as a resort town that truly lives up to its reputation. The pace of life in the city is carefree, laidback and leisurely. People come to Biarritz to relax and enjoy the scenic seaside. Grand Plage is one of the most thronged beaches in the town, thus, surfers prefer a little quieter Cote de Basque beach on the Boulevard du Prince de Galles. Miremont's salon de thé and Dodin's pâtisserie are great places to gobble some delicious cake, while Bar Jean is an ideal choice for excellent tapas.
