We walked from one side of Biarritz to the light house along the promanade and little coastal paths. Fantastic photo opportunities along the way and once at the light house. We didn't climb to the top of the light house, instead choose a refreshment from...More

If you're afraid of heights, this isn't the attraction for you. Still, if you're adventuresome, and don't mind walking up 200+ stairs, the views are spectacular, the wait times are usually short, and the cost is cheap. The area also boasts a cute little outdoor...More

Great walk along the water to get to a perfect magical spot to take the best pictures! It looks further than what it actually is. On the other side of the lighthouse are more beaches which we didn't see from the main city.

It's beautiful place to see the boulevard and beach of Biarritz. The beach is very clean but crowded.

The lighthouse is well worth the walk up from the town to see a bird's eye view of Biarritz. You can climb up to the top (really well worth it) but numbers are limited and you may have to wait for a preceding group to...More

If you want a particular panoramic view, this is the place. But having said that, there is nothing that great that you do not get from other low places. Have to walk up old stairs. Max of 10 people at any one time, so can...More

Our hotel was on the opposite outcrop with the beach in between. So we walked down to sea level, along the promenade and up (up, up!) to the lighthouse. It was worth it though, lovely views.

Situated right at the far end of the headland the phare (lighthouse) can be climbed to give great views of the coast. We walked out there, but didn't go up as it was quite a dull day and the views weren't great but you should...More
