Biarritz is an excellent destination for golf. Play at the many courses Biarrtiz offers, from hilly to flat, from links to woodland. The golfer is sure to enjoy the natural backdrop of the waves of the Atlantic Ocean or the slopes of the Pyrenees.
Golfing devotees have the choice of 11 golf courses within a radius of 50 kilometres, three of which are very close: Chiberta, Ilbarritz and the Lighthouse (Le Phare). Golfers visiting Biarritz can choose from the 18 hole Golf de Biarritz, Le Phare, located in the centre of the town, to the gently rolling course at Arcangues, as well as Makila golf course with its wide fairways, not to mention Seignosse, which is more remote, voted one of the world’s top 50 golf courses.
The mildness of the Basque coast’s climate and the qualities of its sea, make Biarritz and its surrounding area the natural home for numerous thalassotherapy and well-being centres. The Radisson Blu Biarritz offers a Spa with sauna and hammam, six treatment rooms, one of which is a couple’s suite, a relaxation area and a Fitness Centre of 160 m2 with a great view of the sea.
The Basque Country is also a land for rugby where local clubs play in France’s Top 14 championship and compete in European competitions such as the Heineken Cup and the European Challenge Cup. Amongst the best known are Aviron Bayonnais and Biarritz Olympique, whose local derby matches cause passions to rise.
