Biarritz is one of the top destinations in the south of France and it is easy to see why it is such a big hit with people from Ireland traveling there every summer. The city has many great restaurants of which several have the famous Michelin star so fine dining is a way of life in this part of France but that is not for everyone of course. There are plenty of more affordable options in places like the Les Halles central market place. Don’t worry there is plenty of options to work off that great food you will be eating in the evenings and one of the most popular things to do in this part of France is check out the great surf. Peak surf times are from September on wards but the summer can also provide some great waves as well as being able to bask in the sun, just remember to wear plenty of sunscreen!
There is surf for all levels of experience and there are plenty of beginner lessons for those of you who would like to get tip their toes into the surfing world..pardon the pun! There is beach breaks and also peak breaks for those of you who are more experienced. If you are not one for the sea then there are plenty of golf courses around but we would suggest to book ahead as most golf courses have iPhone apps now that allow you to make a booking online. If you don’t have an iPhone we recommend https://www.phoneit.ie/ for a refurbished iPhone as it is more affordable than a brand new one but works just the same.
We would recommend a short stay in Biarritz as it is quite a small city and although there is plenty to do we think a week long stay is plenty here. As it is in the south of France however you can always make the trip down over the border to Spain if you get bored so there are plenty of things to do!
