Anglet

Travel Guide
France showing a bay or harbour, a lighthouse and landscape views

Embark on a forest adventure, spend fun-filled days on a beach and experience Basque cuisine at this town in southwest France.

With beaches, mountains, gardens and a forest, Anglet in France's Basque Country is a great place to experience outdoor life. Here, you can ride the waves on a surfboard, hike or climb through wooded areas and jog along the coastline. At night, enjoy seafood cooked Basque style in a restaurant with a sea view.

Breathe in the fresh sea air and admire the views as you walk or jog along the nearly 3 miles (5 kilometers) of waterfront footpaths. Find the Chambre d’Amour, a sea cave between Anglet's beaches and the Biarritz lighthouse. According to ancient legend, two lovers met here in secret and were taken away by the rising tide.

Anglet has 11 beaches, all with their own unique flavor. If you are into surfing, head for Les Cavaliers, where professional surfers can be seen in competitions. Many families with children, as well as surfers, go to Marinella Beach. You will find a beach club and two surf schools here. Les Dunes is a rugged beach that borders the Chiberta Golf Course. It attracts many nudists, although nudity is prohibited on the town's beaches.

Enjoy a day of fun and adventure in Chiberta Forest. Hike, horse ride or travel on a Segway along marked out paths among the trees. Travel through treetops on zip lines, rope courses and across jungle bridges. There are five adventure courses spread across nearly 4 acres (1.5 hectares) of forest.

Anglet also charms with its host of indoor attractions, including bowling lanes, an ice rink and cinema. See turtles, sharks and seals at the Museum of the Sea and check out the Asian art collection in the Asiatic Museum.

If you are in Anglet on Thursday or Sunday mornings, browse the stalls of Quintaou Market. Try local produce such as Bayonne ham and creamy almond Basque cake. For dinner, reserve a table at a seafront restaurant. There are more than 40 bordering the Sables d’Or beach.

To experience Anglet's beaches, forest and active outdoor pursuits, fly into Biarritz-Anglet-Bayonne Airport.
