‘Culture meets Coastline’
Biarritz Day Trip
Biarritz, is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Locals often call the city “The Queen of the Basque country”. What sets Biarritz apart from the many other beautiful European coastal towns is its beauty & charm, the city is steeped in rich culture & historical relevance with particular reference to the surfing world. It was actually on these very beaches that the first waves in Europe were surfed when a Californian filmmaker called for his surfboard to be shipped out to France after seeing the beautiful waves on offer. Since then the city has been an easy combination of surf & sophistication. Where else can you find an up-market casino on the beach serving trendy cocktails as its patrons watch the surfers & waves almost lapping up to the roulette table?
The best thing about our Biarritz Day Trip is that there is so much to see & do, so much of this chic town to sample that will cost you next to nothing. We start our tour at the famous lighthouse with panoramic views across the city & nearby beaches. Then our walking tour will take us along the pristine coastline, across pedestrian bridges to tiny islands, weaving through art installations & statues, through stained glass churches past our favourite ice cream parlours & will certainly end at a lively watering hole, usually accompanied with live music. Magic!
