A logistical guide to Biarritz: Part One  25/02/2014

The French city of Biarritz has become a very popular holiday destination among younger people over the last few years, in large part due to its beautiful beaches that are considered ideal for water sports enthusiasts.

However, if you’ve never visited this charming holiday destination before, then you’re unlikely to be aware of some of the logistical challenges of enjoying a vacation here.

For that reason, we’re going to provide you with a brief guide to the city and offer you a few tips that could help you along the way.

Travelling to the city

If you’re intending to reach Biarritz from Paris by car, then you face the prospect of a seven-hour journey via the D911 road, off the N10. However, the city is also accessible from a number of other cities in France, as well as some from across the border in Spain, including Bilbao and Madrid.

Alternatively, you may wish to reach your destination by  train. This is easily done and the station itself is only a couple of miles from the very epicentre of life in Biarritz.

You can reach the city by bus, too, and should you decide on this option, you will arrive on square d'Ixelles, in the centre of Biarritz. You can catch a bus from Bayonne, Anglet, Pau, Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Hendaye. There are also daily bus services up to Biarritz from northern Spain.

Finally, and possibly the most popular way to reach the city is by plane, and there are a number of services from around Europe that run to Biarritz.

If you’re coming from London, for instance, then you can hop on a Ryanair flight and be in the French city in less than two hours. These services are daily and are especially popular during the summer months.

And what if you’re looking for somewhere to stay during your holiday? Well, Camping Le Vieux Port with Carisma Holidays might be the ideal place for you.
