In Biarritz, enjoy the surf – or just relax beachside – at the vibrant Grand Plage Beach. Or, wait for low tide to visit the less crowded Cote de Basque – the high tide almost completely covers the sand. There’s a booming nightlife scene as well, with dance clubs hosting world-famous DJs.

Further inland, the Asiatica Oriental Art Museum houses a unique private collection of Asian art and artefacts.
