    • La Barre Beach is the first beach in the Basque Country, when you arrive from the Landes. It is right in front of Vieux Boucau. It is located at the mouth of the Adour, there are beautiful waves for the pleasure of surfers. Nearby, playgrounds and a skate park, restaurants and cafes, it is a lively place, pleasant as much for strolling as for the beach itself. Swimming is supervised.

    Beautiful beach for surfing, sunbathing, swimming and enjoying the Atlantic Ocean with beautiful sand. Sunset is awesome.

    IT'S CLOSED OFF MOST OF IT BECAUSE OF A DUMB, NOISY, LOUD FAIR THAT TAKES UP ALL OF THE PARKING. Anglet closed ALL OFF THE CAMPER PARKINGS TOO. WHY THEY DO THIS IS A MYSTERY TO ME? NO ONE WHO WANTS TO VISIT THE SKATING RING OR SKATEBOARD FACILITY CAN PARK. LET ALONE ANYONE WHO WANTS TO VISIT THIS 'ATTRACTION'. DOES ANGLET OR BAB REALLY NEEDS THIS????

    This beach has horrible and rude lifeguards. When my husband was surfing a so called local thought he owned the waves and figured it was ok to try to drown him. (My husband is an avid surfer and know the rules very well regarding wave etiquette). The local was in the wrong completely. When I notified the lifeguards they said they had been watching the ordeal and said “This man is a local. Everyone here knows him. He was mad because he wanted that wave.” Last time I checked a lifeguards duty is to guard lives. It was horrifying watching a big man pound and drown my husband. Even worse is realizing that the lifeguards solely support locals and condone such beastly and unjustly behavior. I will never visit this beach again. If you are a foreign surfer be utmost careful as you have no protection with the lifeguards at this beach.

    Waves are the big attraction here. Crashing in on the rocks. Also a surfing place, if you like that . Beautiful refreshing walks along the promenade

    We heard about this somewhat isolated and nature spot near Bayonne at the community of Anglet, so we followed a smaller road to the coastal area and were pleasantly surprised at the opportunities...

    Last time I set foot there, fine for parking in an old parking lot with stones without ground markings. A great scam to make money, Macron's world has gone your way.. come to the moors it's still...
