A two-day trip
Two days is just about enough time to fully enjoy your trip to Biarritz. Spending your first day enjoying the city’s luxury beaches would be hard to be beaten. The Hotel Campanile Biarritz is just a short taxi ride from the city centre and the main beach, Grande Plage. If you fancy a go at surfing then the Cote de Basque could be for you and it is easily accessible by a short bus ride. If you want a break from the beach on day two then it could be spent exploring the city centre. There is both the Museum of the Sea, with plenty of different marine life to see, and the Museum of Asian Art which are both well worth a visit. Sainte Eugenie, a Russian Orthodox Church with its famous blue dome, should not be missed.
A one-week break
A full week will allow you to enjoy Biarritz’s beaches to the full as well as seeing what else this exciting city has to offer. The small beach by the Esplanade du Port Vieux is good for swimming and makes a welcome contrast to the busier Grande Plage. Rugby union is a big passion of the city's and if you are lucky enough to be in town when Biarritz Olympique are playing a home game at the Parc des Sports Aguilera then buying a ticket is a must for a truly authentic Biarritz experience. The city also boasts a luxurious golf course in the Golf de Biarritz le Phare and a visit here for a round could be the perfect ending to a relaxing break.
A family holiday
Biarritz is the perfect destination to take the whole family with plenty to do to keep everyone happy! If everyone eventually gets bored of the numerous glorious beaches then there is also the Museum of Chocolate, two casinos on the waterfront and the Thermes Marins health spa. Not to mention the various activities on offer such as kayaking, rafting, water-skiing and cycling.
