A trip to the lighthouse is worthwhile, you get a great view of the Biarritz coast line. You can walk there from the city center or go by car.

Nice view of the Biarritz beach and to the North you can see the very wide beaches which are a surfing paradise. There is a little bar next in the park and if you don't want to walk up there or back to the city,...More

Saw from a distance at nighttime from the grand plage- it’s impressive. In short ch a modern technological era it gives a sense of relying on the old way of doing things.

The lighthouse park is really nice, there’s also a small cafe/bar there with moderate pricing. You can also climb down the stairs onto a cliff type rock and it offers great views on Biarritz and ocean.

Great views and a comfortable park greet you at the lighthouse at Barritz. Seabirds and fishing boat mill around an lend color and sound to the scene. A great place to stop and view the town and historical lighthouse.

Lovely walk from the centre. Good way to see Biarritz from a different angle. Friendly café and good toilets. Loved the 'walk on' sundial - try it!

We decided to walk from the town along the promenade to the lighthouse not for the infirm as there are lots of steps but if your reasonably fit even a 60 y.o. Can do it. Worth it as views back to the town and beaches...More
