Once a sleepy fishing town, Biarritz became a famous holiday destination in the 19th century when the rich and famous fell in love with the area and made it their chosen place of retreat. They built grand mansions and palaces which are now exclusive hotels, and the town is now well known around the world for magnificent surf, beautiful scenery, and a laid back coastal lifestyle. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car hire in Biarritz is both easy and economical.
First stop for most visitors once they have settled into their hotel is a day at the beach. Jump in your hire car and drive along the coast, until you find a spot to your liking, then simply park and enjoy the warm weather and excellent surf. The coast features many rugged rocky outcrops, creating a unique landscape and spectacular views.
To see the area from high up above, drive your rental car to Phare de Biaritz, the town's lighthouse located on the headland just a short distance north of the town centre. The lighthouse is open to tourists, and you will get a fantastic view of Biarritz and the surrounding area from the top.
For the sweet-toothed traveller, there is one attraction in Biarritz that's not to be missed. Jump in your hire car and drive down to Avenue Beau Ravage, not far from the shore, where you can visit Planete Chocolat, a museum containing everything to do with chocolate from its early history, to modern day production.
Once you have seen some of the local sights, it's time to park your rental car and enjoy the part of Biarritz most people come for, the beautiful beaches. Weather you enjoy lazing around, or taking advantage of the world class surf, a day spent on the beaches of Biarritz will remind you just why the town has always been so highly regarded with travellers from around the world.
