Our Surf School is located on the Côte des Basques: the most beautiful beach in France according to Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice.
“Magnificent,” “A terrific beach,” “The most beautiful beach to surf”… Visitors rave about this extraordinary spot in South-West France.
Gazing at that amazing beach, surrounded by cliffs and offering a panoramic view all the way to Spain, never gets old.
At low tide, it’s the perfect place for long walks or a laid back day at the beach with your family. At high tide, come and enjoy the peace and quiet, and the sound of waves breaking on the rocks as the beach disappears under water.
However, first and foremost, this beach remains an iconic surfing spot, famous not only on the Basque Coast but around the world. In fact, the longboard world championship took place here in 2019, with the best international pros competing for the pleasure of all.
Why learn to surf on the Côte des Basques, Biarritz ?
Simply because surfers of all levels will find the perfect spot!
At the North end, near the Villa Belza (a stunning house overlooking the beach), the waves are small and relatively “flat”, perfect to get started.
The small waves near the shore also allow children to learn safely.
To the South, however, seasoned surfers can have fun on faster and higher waves.
