Biarritz – 20 mins from Camping Suhiberry
The up-market seaside resort of Biarritz is just 20 mins from the Suhiberry campsite.
Originally a whaling port – traces of which can be seen in the famous ‘Port Vieux’ – the area experienced an economic boom in the 19th century. Napoleon III and the Empress Eugénie made it their holiday destination. And Biarritz became the favourite seaside resort of all of Europe’s aristocracy. The first golf course in Biarritz, Le Golf du Phare, and the horse races are the legacy of wealthy English visitors.
The Grande Plage, which stretches from the Hotel du Palais to the Grand Casino, is sure to draw you to Biarritz in the Pays Basque.
