Basque Coast, Biarritz, Aquitaine, France 

The magnificent beach at Biarritz, on France’s Basque coast, is known as La Côte des Basques and has long been a playground for the wealthy and surfers.

Because this is the finest beach in a resort that marries old-money style to new-money chic while selling its soul to neither. Crowned heads and movie stars come and go but Biarritz remains resolutely Basque. And, somehow, this magnificent stretch – long, a little wild and backed by unkempt cliffs – helps keep it that way.
