    • This is THE beach in the Basque Country, the one you see on postcards, where you can't help but want to go surfing. There are also many schools that offer their services along the beach. It is said that this is where surfing was born, in the 1950s, when the first courageous and precursors launched themselves with their boards to conquer the waves. Admire the view, the ocean on the board of mountains in the distance, towards Spain. Admire the superb Villa Belza on its rocky promontory! This page of more than a kilometer has everything to please, it was elected among the 3 most beautiful beaches in France. Be careful, at high tide there is almost no beach, don't be surprised by the tide. There is access for PRM on a gentle slope, but no special equipment on the sand.

    Great beach! Lots of stairs but a ramp is also available if you have a stroller or need wheelchair access. The tide does come in so it then turns into a surfers paradise. If you walk down and around by the beautiful house the is a little onlooker with little to no waves so very suitable for kids.

    Lovely promenade all along the sea part of the cote des basques. It was fun walking on a nice sunny day with beautiful views all around.

  • "Hard steps"

    2 / 5 Reviews posted by xHaeliG (Cle Elum, Washington) on 01/07/2022

    I climbed these hard steps and got there with great difficulty. No sweat as it was an overcaste day but weather that day meant no good views.
