  • I walked all the way from centre ville to the phare. Then climbed up the stairs for a beautiful view of Biarritz and Anglet. The gardens surrounding are lovely too.

  • The stunning view of the beautiful beaches of Biarritz and the city itself at the top of the lighthouse is definitely worth the climb! It's a must go if you pass by Biarritz! Not recommended for elder people or people who have fear of heights as there are 248 steps to the top.
  • 248 steps for a stunning view of Biarritz Took some great photos
