Sea, surf and sun in Biarritz!
Take some time to recharge your batteries on the sandy beaches of the Basque country: head to Biarritz with OUIBUS! A long-time favourite spot for artists and the upper classes, Biarritz is brimming with elegant buildings and fascinating places. Discover the city’s glamorous past at the Musée Historique and visit the Villa Belza, an old Russian cabaret. Even if you decide not to stay there, check out the Hotel du Palais, which was built by Napoleon III for his wife, Eugénie de Montijo, as well as the imperial chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe.
If the weather is nice, step out onto the walkway built by Gustave Eiffel’s company to admire the Virgin’s rock, one of the town’s symbols. After that, climb the 248 steps of Biarritz’s lighthouse for an incredible view of the Cap Hainsart.
Biarritz is the perfect destination for those who love active holidays! Choose between snorkelling and surfing or head towards the surrounding mountains for a white-water rafting challenge. In a more relaxed setting, try out some Basque pelota, a racquet sport which comes from this region.
Come teatime, enjoy a sweet treat at the famous Miremont confectionary on the Place Clemenceau, where the aristocracy used to gather. Continue your culinary discovery at the Planète Musée du Chocolat or tuck into a steaming bowl of mussels in one of the bistrots by the Grande Plage – Biarritz’s impressive beach. After one last night of partying in the casino or the nightclubs of Biarritz, OUIBUS will see you home safely.
