The beaches of Anglet

Long overshadowed by their Biarritz counterparts, the beaches of Anglet are second to none with nearly five kilometres of fine sand.

A favourite locale for surfers looking for big waves, the beaches of Anglet also have other sports activities on offer. Start the day off with a coastal walk or a morning swim. During the day, the infamously mythic "Petite Chambre d'Amour" ("Small House of Love", in reference to a local legend that took place in a nearby cave by the beach: Saubade and Laorens, two lovers in the 17th century, were surprised by the rising tide and swept away through the waves) becomes a vibrant place where life is good.

A pleasant lunch can be had, under the sun or shade, in a classic restaurant or as a takeaway snack. The Sables d'Or beach is lined with beach volleyball courts. La Barre has a skate park, skating rink and children's playground space. The many beach huts along the coast are the perfect place to stretch out a little later and catch the sunset.
