La Grande Plage

Not all beaches need to be deserted to provide an unforgettable experience on the sand. La Grande Plage, or the Big Beach, is the most popular tourist beach in the Biarritz resort area, but that’s also what makes it so exciting. This spacious beach has plenty of room for sunbathers and is dotted with photogenic red, green, yellow, and blue striped beach huts. Biarritz is also a well-known surfing destination, so pack your board shorts, take a lesson in La Grande Plage, or advance your skills at one of the bigger wave spots in the area.
