A town focused on young people and the ocean

105 miles from Bordeaux, 23 miles from San Sebastian and 2.5 hours from Toulouse, this town in the South-West of France is the European surfing capital. And the title is well deserved!

Indeed, many water sports enthusiasts come from all around the world to take advantage of the legendary beaches that are among the finest in France. Biarritz is not only the ideal place to participate in many sports (rugby, pelota, tennis, golf etc.) but also attracts thousands of young people in search of sea and sun in the summer.

Combining modernity and an attachment to traditions, this town on the Atlantic coast offers easy access to the ocean and has good transport links. It has an airport (1.8 miles from the town center) with direct flights to Paris, London, Madrid, Geneva, Dublin, Frankfurt and Barcelona. For those who prefer the high-speed train, Biarritz is a 4.5-hour train ride from Paris-Montparnasse. 

Biarritz: an ideal destination for young adults

Feel like going shopping? The town is perfect if you feel like wandering around the shops: les Halles, la place Clémenceau and Saint-Charles district are ideal spots for indulging in your favorite pastime.

There is something for everyone with all clothing styles available in the stores (chic, trendy, sports clothes etc). If you are feeling a bit peckish, you are spoiled for choice. Many reasonably-priced snacks are on offer including salads, sandwiches and home-made burgers.
