Biarritz, legendary destination

Between beaches and mountains, Hotel Barnea benefits from an ideal location in Biarritz to allow you to discover this mythical city imbued with a strong Basque identity. Marked by the architecture of Napoleon III who had Villa Eugénie built for the empress, it has established itself today as the capital of surfing and the trendiest seaside resort on the Basque coast.

Start your exploration with a stroll around hotel Barnea in old Biarritz, where the cobbled streets reveal an authentic and charming atmosphere. Don't miss the famous Halles, renowned for its fish and seafood stalls. Immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere of the Grande Plage, a surfer's paradise, or in the quieter beach of Miramar, towards the famous "Rocher de la Vierge" and its statue, the totem of the city erected in 1865.

In the evening, explore the lively Port des Pêcheurs district, where you can taste excellent fish in a picturesque setting. You will end with a show at the Casino Barrière, unless you prefer a cocktail with a view, or have a simple drink in a festive hut.
