Everyone seemed to be walking to ghis part to look at the sea. The Virginia statue is on an outcrop of rock. You get nice views looking back at Biarritz shoreline.

Situated at one end of the beach, you can walk out on the causeway for great views. Not the activity to do when the sea is rough though as you will probably get very wet!

Good views and a nice way to take in the scenery for 30 mins. There are also people selling paintings on small wooden surf boards etc, so you can get some holiday Biarritz memorabilia

It is nice to walk across the coast to this point from Biarritz. The rocky landscape with the ocean is interesting. The statue itself is plain but worth a visit for the views and area
