A great spot for surfing.

In the kingdom of the Basque Country, surfing is king and Biarritz is its capital. This seaside resort has plenty of beaches, including Grande Plage, a much-loved spot for riding the waves. Board in hand, this is the place to go. It's steeped in history and was once called The Beach of Fools because this is where the insane were taken on walks to keep them calm. Surf mania lives on here, as the beach plays host to international competitions, including the world championships. Follow in the wake of Kelly Slater and tame the waves!
