Surf Grande Plage

Added by Elena Pearson

The most popular beach in the area, with waves that get big during the winter.

This is the main beach in Biarritz, France. It's a very popular summer time destination, but the waves are on the smaller side during this season. The waves begin to pick up during the fall and winter months. This is a beach break, providing rippable waves up and down the beach. There is a rip that takes you out to the lineup on the south end of the beach by the rocks. Use this on a bigger day.

Just a short walk from Grande Plage is Cote des Basques, which is also a great spot to check out if you're thinking of going for a surf.
