Two free Chronoplus (www.chronoplus.eu) shuttle buses trundle around central Biarritz (every 15 minutes, 7.30am to 7.30pm, Monday to Saturday). One travels around the town centre and inland; the other runs north–south along the coast between Plage Miramar, Grande Plage and Plage de la Milady.


There is almost nowhere to park for free in Biarritz; parking either on-street or in one of the large municipal car parks costs at least €1.30 per hour (although you usually don't have to pay on-street between noon and 2.30pm, but check the meter to confirm).
