Soorts Hossegor is situated 35 Km. North from Biarritz in the Frence Atlantic coast. It is the best known surf centre on the Aquitane coast. It is claimed that the best beach break in the world is found here.

It is a place where many international surf competitions are held, and the town is very popular for its after surfing scene.

On the waterfront square you find everything you need. Surf, sand, restaurants, a hotel, bars and late bars. It is not mass tourism we see here, but an upmarket beach front scene.

The town centre nearby gives the same image, and if you drive around in the general area, you move between smart villas, small inland tidal lakes and a well maintained semi forested area.

Along the water front, but in second line, behind the apartments, you can find parking. Also you can follow the costal road North, and along you find smaller parking sites located behind he sand dunes.
