Biarritz was a just a small whaling port before Empress Eugénie and the novelist Victor Hugo discovered it in the 19th century. Since then, the town has become famous as a chic and trendy coastal resort.

It is blessed with huge beaches and powerful waves which have made it a world-famous surfing destination. Biarritz’ second flagship sport is undoubtedly golf, but visitors can also indulge in tennis, horse-riding, rugby and, of course, pelota.

This prestigious Basque town has, since its origins, been characterised by a strong attachment to both cultural and culinary traditions. So don’t miss the opportunity to discover this elegant and lively Basque town, which is only 20 minutes from the Lou P'tit Poun campsite ****.
