For those who visit Biarritz, the name of this city comes with a reputation of one of the best spots for surfing in France. Located in Basque coast, the beaches of Biarritz attract lots of tourists during summer, for sports and leisure.
There have been times when I’ve preferred visiting a place in its low season. Whether it’s going to Mont Saint Michel in a late November, or go for a hike in the Alps in August, being able to avoid tourists and get a different view of the place has motivated me to do so for Biarritz too. I went to visit Biarritz in February and didn’t regret it.
What if I told you that you could visit Biarritz off season and still enjoy it? Here are my favourite photos of this city!
Reasons to visit Biarritz in the low season
1. The manors
Now that crappy weather reigns in France, you can enjoy traveling in touristy regions without tourists. The bad weather will offer a dramatic spectacle to this city, and imposing manors on high hills will look like a remake of series with Sherlock Holmes.
2. The agitated sea
To experience a little of the surfers’ paradise, you can find yourself in a place to get splashed by the waves. Imagine for a second you’re that skillful surfer you once saw on TV, and you’re professionally riding a hell wave. Hell, yeah!
3. The blue sky
If the weather is still windy and freezing outside, it’s clear you will not bathe, suntan or surf. That being said, you may be lucky enough to have a blue sky. Just enjoy those last rays of summer and blue sky, as they might be last ones for this year.
