The Lighthouse offers a breathtaking panorama of the Basque coast, the ocean and
the mountains which, on a sunny day, is well worth the 248 steps it takes to get to the balcony at the top.
(Be prepared to queue for a while on busy days because, due to the limited width of both the staircase and the viewing balcony, access is limited to just a few people at a time).
Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm (6pm after the switch to daylight saving time).
School holidays: Every afternoon from 2pm to 5pm (6pm after the switch to daylight saving time).

Please contact the Biarritz Tourist Office before visiting the lighthouse because, depending on weather conditions, it can be closed to the public for safety reasons.
