This is a good place to stop and view the coast, the surfers and the most interesting rock formations.

The Virgin In The Rock is a good place to visit, located close to many restaurants and to a nice beach.

Nice walk with great sea views. Go during a blue sky and you will love it. The whole general area is beautiful to walk around.

The "rocher" is one of the most emblematic monuments of Biarritz, the walking is really nice, and from the rocher you can see both bays of Biarritz. Spectacular view. Very close to this monument you can find the Acquarium, a small but very interesting acquarium....More

While visiting the city, it's a must do. As every must do, there are a lot of tourists there ! but despite of that, you should definately do the walk !

Nice walk form the beach of the old port to the rocher and on to the main town beach. Lovely views in particular.

We went here at nighttime. Have to admit but the French do tourism well - the lighting in the surrounding area really adds to the location.

Crowded. But a must see when in Biarritz. Some people climb at the top. But it’s dangerous and disrespectful. Spend some time looking at the waves and their power.

I went for a walk here when I first arrived in Biarritz - it was cloudy and stormy, but amazing views of the surf and coast just the same!! Loved it. It's also incredible during the sunset.
