Adresse of the Grande Beach : Quai de la Grande Plage 64200 Biarritz

Grande Beach in Biarritz is the most central beach in the area and is the most frequented. Located along a nice promenade with a casino, a swimming pool, and the Palais de Biarritz (hotel), it extends over 450 meters of fine sand. This beach is the most reputed of Biarritz. In the summer we can even rent a colored tent! Note that this beach has had several names over the years: Imperatrice and Fous. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Biarritz. Access to this beach is easy from the Quai de la Grande Plage – stairs or ramp for the handicapped. Paid parking in Vinci Grande Plage or at the casino – about 1.50 euros per hour.

This beach has a lifeguard from the beginning of June to the end of September. We also find kid's clubs and surf schools. Several cafes and restaurants are available around the beach.
