Rocks that defy the surf: Côte Basque

Rocks that defy the surf: Côte Basque

Beaches, cliffs and powerful surf

Although only 30 kilometers long, it is full of wild beauty: the Côte Basque stretches all the way down to the Spanish border. With its steep cliffs and jagged rocks that defy the powerful surf, it is a delightful contrast to the endless sandy strips of its northern neighbor, the Cote d'Argent. Until the middle of the 17th century the Basque coastal population was living from whaling. Then the giant mammals moved away from the coast further and further, forcing the fishermen to switch to sardines, anchovies and tuna. At the same time, the fishing villages on the Côte Basque were discovered as seaside resorts – first and foremost Biarritz.
