St Jean de Luz

Just to the south of Biarritz, St-Jean-de-Luz is a picturesque fishing port that’s worth heading to for some of the region’s best Basque cuisine.

St Jean de Luz is a pretty coastal town featuring Dutch architecture and an abundance of sea food restaurants serving local tuna, sardines and lobster. From here it’s just a 30min drive over the border with Spain to San Sebastian with its whaling museum and aquarium. St Jean de Luz also has a pretty marina and a beach.
