The beautiful French city of Biarritz is known throughout the world as being a top destination for water sports enthusiasts, as it is home to some spectacular beaches and impressive surf.

However, there is much more to the city than you realise at first. Indeed, there is plenty to keep you occupied while on a camping holiday in France.

Here, we're going to provide a brief guide to some of the top attractions in the city.

Orthodox Church

Built in 1892, the Orthodox Church is among the most impressive structures in the city and is definitely worth visiting if you get the chance to do so.

The church feature a Byzantine design and is the result of design work by an architect from Biarritz, M. Tisnes.

Interestingly, it is decorated using icons that have come straight from St Petersburg. Access to the public is free and the site really ought to feature prominently on your list of must-visit attractions.

Chocolate Museum

But what if that doesn't sound like your type of thing? Well, don’t worry as there are plenty of other attractions to visit.

One such example is the charming Chocolate Museum, which is a real treat (if you forgive the pun) if you've got a bit of a sweet tooth.

Although you may not be aware of it, the history of the Basque Country and chocolate are tightly linked.

And this story is told in fascinating detail at the museum, where you will also be afforded the chance to try a range of different treats.

The Lighthouse

Finally, you ought to take the opportunity to visit the iconic lighthouse, which is, perhaps, the most recognisable sight in the city.

Built in 1834, the lighthouse offers some amazing views across the water and is ideal if you're looking to take some snaps while on your travels.
