Enjoy a great holiday in Biarritz  28/02/2014

In recent years, the French city of Biarritz has become an especially popular holiday destination among people from across the continent.

This is, of course, largely because of its ever-improving reputation as a great destination for adrenaline-seeking water sports lovers, most of whom are keen to make the most of the great surf on offer.

It is worth noting, however, that there is much more to this holiday destination than you may be aware.

Here, we’re going to explore two of the alternative sporting activities.


While Biarritz is best known for being home to some spectacular beaches, it is similarly famous for its array of beautiful golf courses.

Indeed, some of these rank among the most famous in Europe and can provide a wonderful backdrop to one of your favourite hobbies.

If you’re looking to escape your everyday stresses then there is no better way of achieving this than by enjoying a game on one of Biarritz’s best courses with your friends.

Biarritz Rugby Club

The city is, of course, home to one of the best and most famous rugby sides in Europe, which has won the domestic championships on a number of occasions, while it has also competed in the European cup.

The team is distinguished by its strong sense of identity with the Basque country and if you happen to get a ticket to one of their games, you’re sure to hear plenty of pro-Basque songs from the terraces.

If nothing else, it is worth taking the chance to enjoy the rare atmosphere that the local fans provide. There are few sporting teams that offer such an interesting cultural experience.

Wondering where to stay during your trip to this delightful part of France? Camping Le Vieux Port, with Carisma Holidays, could be the ideal place for you and your travel group.
