The pretty seaside resort is the city of all contrasts, welcoming surfers in search of the most beautiful waves and wealthy tourists! You have to stroll through its historic center and admire the elegant villas to understand it. Between the Basque half-timbered houses, the seaside villas, the luxurious hotels and the art deco casino, the architectures are very varied. Then walk along the Grande Plage to the fishermen's port. Full of charm, this small port offers a totally different atmosphere from the rest of Biarritz, more intimate and relaxed. It is even possible to snack on some specialties in the middle of the small houses and old boats. The walk which winds on the plateau of Atalante is particularly pretty to discover the curiosities by the sea. You will see the waves crashing against the dike, the pretty rock of the virgin and in the distance, the lighthouse of Biarritz. You can also enjoy the impressive and fascinating sea museum, or the superb beaches of the Biarritz region.

Over ten kilometres, the Basque corniche or "road to the corniche" is a protected natural area. This rocky coast, at the crossroads of Ciboure, Urrugne and Hendaye, is made up of jagged cliffs, heather moors, creeks and agricultural areas. With magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean, the coastal path will offer you excellent family or romantic hikes.

The last protected natural area on the French Basque coast, the Corniche Basque offers striking landscapes, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and at the foot of the Pyrenees.

The site is characterized by steep cliffs, creeks and two famous rocks "the Twins" witnesses of the decline of the coast. The cliffs tell, in fact, in a few hundred meters, millions of years of history of the earth.

Vast meadows, the Atlantic moor, groves sculpted by the winds offer the image of a space of nature contrasting with the towns of Hendaye or Biarritz that can be seen nearby. Arriving in Hendaye, on the Domaine d'Abbadia, the Maison de la Corniche (or Asporotsttipi farm) offers a reading of the fauna and flora of this space.
