Wednesday Postcard: Biarritz, France

Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features the seaside town of Biarritz, located in southwest France on the Atlantic coast, just north of the border with Spain. The town is a popular destination for visitors who enjoy surfing, golfing, or going to the spa.

Top left: La Grande Plage is the largest of Biarritz’s six beaches.
Top right: Hôtel du Palais was originally built by Napoleon III for his wife, Eugénie. Today, the property is a 5-star luxury hotel.
Center: Le Rocher de la Vierge is a rock formation with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top of it
Bottom left: From Le Rocher du Basta you can see the whole Grande Plage
Bottom right: Le Port Vieux is a smaller, kid-friendly beach

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!


  1. In all of my four years in France, I had never visited Biarritz. I’ve always heard good things about it, and your postcard makes me want to go (hopefully, without as many people featured on the postcard)! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    1. I know what you mean- all this social/physical distancing has made me wonder whether we’ll ever gather in large crowds again. I’d love to visit Biarritz, too…one day! Glad you liked the postcard! 🙂
