  • Since major works the cul-de-sac road leading to the surfers' beach has become a paved promenade from which most parking lots have been removed. The surroundings of the establishments that line the beach have been renovated to the delight of biarrots and visitors who can contemplate, the sea and surfers in front of the beautiful Basque sunsets, while sipping a drink or dining. Too bad that the sidewalk that leads to it, is made up of large uneven stones, although aesthetic that can be dangerous for older people.
