Its all about surfing...and the rich and the famous

A forbidding coastline, a good surf, Basque-style houses, tapas bars....and a lot of summer tourists!
That is Biarritz, a prime destination in south-western France forever branded by the passage by Napoleon III.

Today, Biarritz, the pearl of the Basque coast, is a luxury seaside town for summer tourists.
Neoprene-clad surfers with their boards under their arms, families with children and business men all come together in the tapas bars along the coastline for a few bites and a glass of sangria....only a few kilometres from the Spanish border you can easily sense the Spanish influence!
