Biarritz, côté Océan

Since the end of the 1950s, Biarritz has been recognised as one of the best surfing spots in Europe. Surfers from all over the world ride the waves of the Atlantic and meet up for major competitions, such as the Roxy Pro, the women’s world longboard championship, which takes place every year in July.

Numerous surfing schools welcome you on the beaches of Biarritz, particularly on the Côte des Basques, the historic cradle of the discipline, located just a stone’s throw from the hotel residence Le Grand Large. Take advantage of your stay on the Basque coast to learn to master your board or to improve your skills. Beginners and experienced surfers, adults, children and teenagers, let yourself be tempted by this trendy discipline which combines sport and ocean.

In addition to surfing, the beaches and the ocean offer numerous possibilities for water sports activities to discover with family or friends: you can choose between bodyboarding, scuba diving, swimming, canoeing, paddleboarding, jet skiing, kite surfing…
