Surfing is still the number one local sport, but the Basque Country is also a golfing destination, beloved by golfers the world over.
In spring and summer, it is best to book well in advance. On the road to Anglet, Chiberta is one of the region's exceptional golf clubs. Famous architect Tom Simpson designed the course. One of the provisions in his contract was to “build the world's most beautiful golf course”. Furthermore, the sand bed from which it is made is the assurance you can play all year long, even after rainfalls.
There are two courses to choose from: 18 holes for seasoned players and Empress, a 9-hole course ideal for beginners and for upcoming talents to practice. The holes and fairways are a feast for the eyes: some, like the famous second hole, are on the seaside, while others are in a beautiful pinewood in the heart of the Chiberta forest. At the end of the day, enjoy a delightful walk along the coast, dividing the links and the beach.
