Attractions of Biarritz  06/03/2014

If you're looking to enjoy a memorable summer holiday, then the French city of Biarritz is one destination that is definitely worth considering.

This is because there are loads of great attractions in the area and contrary to the general perception, these do extend well beyond the top surf that Biarritz is best known for.

Here, we're going to take a look at some of the other attractions that the city has to offer.

The lighthouse

Built in 1834, the lighthouse is among the most popular and recognisable sights in the city - and one that is definitely worth visiting on a camping holiday in France.

Standing 83 metres tall, the lighthouse marks the boundary between the sandy Landes coast and the Basque Country.

In order to reach the top you will need to climb as many as 248 steps, but you will be able to enjoy some exceptional views once you find the summit.

Sea Museum

If you're travelling with young children, then this is one of the must-visit sites in Biarritz, as they are sure to have a brilliant time.

It is home to some amazing sights that are sure to ignite their imaginations, while the sheer scale of the museum is similarly impressive.

Indeed, there are nearly 50 aquariums and thousands of species to see as you make your way around the museum.

The Chocolate Museum

But what about if you fancy indulging your tastebuds? Well, the Chocolate Museum is well worth visiting as you can learn all about how chocolate goes from being a mere bean into a tasty treat.

And what's great about the siteis that you get to enjoy some of the treats as part of the final stop on the tour.
