April in Biarritz, a coastal resort town on the south western portion of the French coast, is lovely yet still a bit cool. Visitors will discover that the weather is slowly beginning to warm up but that it can still be much too cool to enjoy the beaches that the town is so famous for.
The average daily high temperature that visitors will experience in April is around 15°C (59°F). It's not too cold but still requires warm clothing for sustained outdoor activity.
On average, the nightly low temperature that visitors can expect is around 8°C (46°F). Coats, sweaters and other cold weather clothing will definitely be required for any night time outdoor activities in April.

The average temperature of the seas around Biarritz in April is 13°C (55°F), which is too cold for swimming unless one wears a protective or insulated wetsuit. Surfers may be seen at this time of the year in Biarritz.
A trip to the south of France wouldn't be complete without a visit to one of the many resort spas that are liberally sprinkled throughout the city of Biarritz. Many of the better hotels in the area offer spa services such as the Sofitel Biarritz Le Miramar Thalassa and the Hotel du Palais to name a few. They can be a bit expensive, but a relaxing vacation can hardly be complete without a full spa treatment to relax, rejuvenate and reawaken the senses.
Sampling the varied cuisines offered in some of the eclectic restaurants, cafes and eateries around the city is also a must. From tapas to pastries to chocolate and everything in between, Biarritz offers too many culinary delights to pass up. Forget about being on a diet when visiting Biarritz; you'll miss out on too much good food if you don't!
The Grand Tonic Hotel Biarritz is a fine example of the kind of hotel that is both affordable and luxurious. Located just 200 meters from the main beach (la Grande Plage beach), this hotel gives guests all the comforts of home and is right in the middle of everything that Biarritz has to offer. Guests will find spacious, well appointed rooms with free Wi-Fi access, satellite TV and a shaded terrace. There is a restaurant and bar on-site and the Casino Barriere de Biarritz is only a short walk away.
