Again the night was a little humid, so none of my loundry tryied out and once again I had to attatch them to the back of the bike and let them dry on the way. Until mid-day there was overcast, but soon after, the clouds moved away for another hot day.
I wasn’t up for much cycling, I just wanted to get the Biarritz and the towns around it, which are located at the furthest north-west corner of France, next the Atlantic ocean and the Spanish borders.
Biarritz is a high class resort. The coast if build up with big, old and posh hotels, restaurants, villas and castles. Within the beaches, there are a few huge rocks and some of them have been turned into small islands connected by foot bridges.
After a short break in Biarritz, I move to Saint Jean De Luz, which is also a very beautiful town, but a lot more grounded. Its center is pedestrianized and has maintained all the nice old buildings, giving it a very nice character and atmosphere. Since these towns are so close to Spain, I saw many bars and restaurants serving Spanish food and drinks.
Looking for camp sites in the area, I decided on one is in Urrugne, a village just a couple of kilometers south of Saint Jean De Luz, since it was the closest to the center. I checked in early, pitched my tent and cook something to eat before going back to the towns for more wondering around. Urragne is also a very pretty village, with again old buildings on the main road in front of the port. I am tempted to stay an extra day here.
