Have fun in Biarritz  13/02/2014

The French town of Biarittz is a popular holiday destination and is the ideal place to visit if you love nothing more than heading out to sea with your surf board in tow.

In fact, it is actually a great place to enjoy a range of sports and is, perhaps, equally noted for being popular among golfers.

The resort is seen as something of a gateway to Spain given its geographic location. And it has become a hugely popular location among holidaymakers after it was impressively transformed from being a quaint fishing port into something much more welcoming.

In truth, this process started in the 19th century when the French monarchy began to vacation here. These days, however, you are not purely reliant on the spectacular views to keep you occupied on your camping holiday in France.

But what, in particular, is there to see and enjoy in the region?


If you fancy enjoying a golfing holiday then there are few better destinations than Biarritz. There are, in fact, as many as ten golf courses in the 20 kilometres around the town.

This means that you're truly spoilt for choice, while the beauty of the area makes for the perfect backdrop for a relaxing game or two.

Maritime Museum

There are as many as 150 acquatic species to be found in these waters and if you're travelling with young children, this is one place that you must visit.

The kids can learn loads about the amazing wildlife that you can find here, which includes things like sharks and seals.

Biarritz lighthouse

If you want to enjoy the beauty of the region, then the perfect vantage point is the famous lighthouse, which ranks among the most recognisable and visited landmarks.

So for an all-round holiday experience, head to Biarritz, where you will find great accommodation at Camping Le Vieux Port.
