Soak in the culture of Biarritz  18/02/2014

If you’re interested in travelling to the charming French town of Biarritz, then you’ll probably be drawn to the idea on account of its beautiful beaches and its reputation for embracing sporty types.

And while it is true to say that the region’s spectacular beaches and incredible golf courses rank among the major attractions, it is important to note that there is much more to Biarritz than is immediately apparent.

Here, we’re going to provide a brief guide to some of the region’s other attractions.


The town offers a fabulous mix of architectural flavours, and so if you’re looking for a variety of styles and tastes, Biarritz is a top holiday destination.

At one end of the scale, you will find Russian Orthodox churches, which are certainly worthy of the odd photograph; at the other end, you will come across spectacular Art Deco mansions.

With so many fantastic sights to enjoy, it is imperative that you keep your eyes peeled and your camera at the ready!

Musee d’Art Oriental Asiatica

Located on the outskirts of the town, Musee d’Art Oriental Asiatica is home to some spectacular pieces of artworks.

Indeed, you will come across ancient Indian, Chinese and Tibetan statues that are sure to make an impression on you.

What’s more, the venue houses some impressive-looking monuments and temple artwork.

Cite de l’Ocean

Theoretically, this is simply a museum of the ocean – but there is so much more to Cite de l’Ocean than the name would have you believe.

It is, in fact, a cutting-edge museum and theme-park rolled into one – and one of the must-visit attractions of the town.

And if you’re wondering about where to stay on your vacation in Biarritz, don’t fret. Camping Le Vieux Port is the perfect place to base yourself during your camping holiday in France.
