An unmissable event, the Festival of the Sea celebrates the ocean, which has a very special place in the daily life of the locals. The programme for the weekend includes street entertainment , concerts, music and dancing; local stands where you can sample local specialities; and a flotilla of ships to commemorate those lost at sea.

Situated north of Biarritz with long sweeping beaches and dunes, typical of the Landes departement, Capbreton offers a festival which is full of flowers, procession with floats, music and dancing. The town is situated about 40 km north of Biarritz, and is a popular holiday destination for sailors, surfers, and beach-goers.
