Anglet, the "Little California" of the Basque coast
15 minutes from the campsite, Anglet is a seaside resort entirely dedicated to discovering nature, fitness and outdoor activities. This is not surprising since Anglet has more than 4 km of beach, waves that make surfers dream, a pine forest next to the ocean, an internationally renowned golf course, a thalasso centre with direct access to the beach.
The beaches of Anglet, the embarrassment... of the choice

If we had to choose only one, we would go for the beach of La Madrague, the prettiest according to the "Angloys" (not our British friends, but the inhabitants of Anglet). If you are a surfer, the Cavaliers beach is all found. It hosts professional surfing competitions. As for the beach of the Ocean, it cultivates its wild side and naturism is tolerated.
