Anglet is Bayonne’s beach! The towns run into one another and together with neighbouring Biarritz form the BAB (Bayonne-Anglet-Biarritz) urban area.
Anglet has everything you are looking for in a great family holiday with sports and the great outdoors. From the beaches, surfing, cycle paths to Chiberta forest and the golf course.
Just down the coast Biarritz stuns tourists with its prestige, history and Grande Plage. The beautiful beaches and luxury 5-star hotel in the town centre, l’Hotel du Palais, give Biarritz an international reputation.
To reach the must-visit Musée de la Mer (an Aquarium and Maritime Museum), follow the coastline past the old whaling lookout at l’Atalaye. Housed in an art deco building overlooking the ocean, the museum takes visitors on a quality tour of its many aquariums including a shark tank, and the star attraction: a seal enclosure on the terrace.
After complete renovation in 2012, the museum now offers, new aquariums with a larger visitor centre, audio visuals, one of France’s largest tanks and a Caribbean lagoon and sensory pool.
