      San Sebastian to Biarritz Train or bus

      Hi there,

      I'm arriving in San Sebastian next week and will take a day trip to Biarritz. What is the best way to get there? I'll be traveling on Monday, so would I be better off taking PESA bus directly to Biarritz in the morning or the Eusko train to Hendaye and change it to French train from there?

      Your feedback will be much appreciated

    • Train from Biarritz to Tarbes

      by BevnWills Online Now Aug 11, 2012 at 12:17 AM

      Hello there,

      I wonder if anyone can help. I am arriving in Biarritz in a few weeks time and will be travelling on to Tarbes. I will be getting the train there - but I was wondering if anyone has got this train before and what will the sign on the front of the train say? By the looks of the train network map - the high speed train finishes at Tarbes - but the line carries on further past Tarbes. I will be travelling with my 6 year old son and I am a little worried as my french is very minimal, so I am trying to make life a little easier for me by knowing what to look for!
      Also, does anyone know if it is best to pay for my train ticket on the internet before I go - or is it cheaper to pay on the day?
      I think I will be getting a taxi from the airport to the train station (any ideas how much I would expect to pay?)
      Kind regards and many thanks in advance,
      Bev n Wills x

    • surf in southwest france

      by mmay003 Online Now May 14, 2012 at 10:29 PM


      I have the amazing opportunity to spend 10 days in France. I travel for my work, so this is basically a work trip with 10 days off in between.

      I love to surf, so naturally I decided on going to the south west corner of France to visit. Does anyone have any suggestions on sites to see, or places to visit? Or on any fun hostel to stay at where I might meet likeminded travelers out to have a good time? I am young, and dont mind hostels or a good time.

      I was planning on checking out the Biarritz and Hossegeur area (incorrect spelling I know). As well as heading down to San Sebastion.

      Would you reccomend spending more time in Biarritz or in Hossegur?

      Also would like to go to Paris, and maybe even up to Bordeux for their annual wine festival. I will be In France from June24th- july 3rd.

      Do I need to rent a car, or will it be sufficient enough to use public transportation? Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I have very little knowledge on the area as is.

    • bus from Biarritz to Tardets?

      by ATelichan Online Now Feb 8, 2012 at 9:36 AM


      I am moving to a home located in the hamlets of Alos-Sibas-Abense (near Tardets) in early March. I will be in the midst of a whirlwind journey by my move-in date, as I will be flying from NYC to Paris and then immediately taking a train from Paris to Biarritz. I then need to find a way from Biarritz to Tardets.

      My landlord tells me with certainty that there is a bus from Biarritz to Tardets (although she herself has never used it). I cannot find any information about this on the internet. I am sure that I will be able to confirm all transportation information once in Biarritz, but seeing as I will be weary from so much traveling (with heavy baggage) by the time I arrive there, I would like to knock out as many "unknowns" as possible prior to travel.

      Any information on travel from Biarritz to this (Tardets Sorholus OR Alos-Sibas-Abense) will be helpful.

      Thank you, Andrew

      World Surfing Tour (ASP event)

      by Stingdaddy Online Now Aug 25, 2011 at 2:18 PM

      Hi all,

      A few mates and I are heading to Biaritz for the world surfing event in Hossegor or Seignosse in October. We were planning on staying in Biaritz and hiring a car to go and watch the surfing each day.

      We are wondering if it might be better and more fun though to stay closer to Hossegor/Seignosse???

      We basically want to watch the surfing each day and also find some waves for ourselves. At night we would prefer to stay somewhere where we can party and have a good time.

      Can anyone recommend whether we should stay in Biaritz or closer to the event if we want all the above options??

      Also does anyone know a cheap hostel in the region that allows you to combine surf board hire with the accommodation. I have done this before in Portugal.

      Thanks a lot.

      I arrive in Biarritz late on a Saturday night at about 22.00(bloody budget airlines...) too late to catch a train to Irun. I'm a student who's planning to walk the camino Del Norte ad the whole trip is on a shoe-string so getting a hotel is unfortunatly out of the question. I was wanting to know if any buses to Hendaye would be running at this time (the time table seems imposible to get hold of)or if it is possible to walk to Biarritz train station from the airport and also if its possible to sleep rough at the train station for the night or if it is all locked up.

      Anyway any advice would be most welcome!
