About Biarritz, south of France
Biarritz itself is indeed a major tourist attraction during the summer months as well as a highly rated surf destination. An elegant town full of culture, bars, surf shops and restaurants offering fresh seafood, pizzas and local Basque dishes.
The town is steeped in history and has buckets of stunning beaches, we recommend you find yourself a nice spot near the sea front and watch the world go by.
Our agency is just north of Biarritz in Soorts Hossogor. Hossegor is crowned the capital of surfing of France due to its pristine, competition level surf breaks and many of them. It’s also a cool shopping town with cafés and - more surf shops per square foot than anywhere I have ever been.
Heading south of Biarritz the first hot spot we recommend is Saint-Jean-de-Luz, an old Basque fishing town with some great campsites close to the coast. The town itself is very charming and as well has a lovely beach with a cracking point break surf spot called Lafitenia.
Close by and visible from Saint-Jean-de-Luz is the lively town of San Sebastián, home of cultural landmarks, Basque tapas and fashionable beaches. If your looking for a little city break on your trip it’s a good place to stop for a day and there are good campsites close by.
Other locations we recommend taking a look include Hendaye, Bilabao and Mundaka.
If you fancy putting a few kilometres under your belt then head for Spain’s Galicia. The road trip from Biarritz to the tip of Northern Spain couldn’t get any better. The road runs along the coastline littered with wonderful little bays and spots to set up camp for a few nights. It’s one of our most popular trips.
