Biarritz is a resort town on the south-western coast of France, bordered by the Bay of Biscay on the Atlantic coast. In January, the weather is quite cold but there are many things for visitors to see and do in this quaint city by the sea.
The average daily high temperature in January is going to be around 11°C (53°F). Being located directly on the sea, Biarritz is often quite breezy so visitors will likely need to pack warm clothing such as long sleeve shirts and coats for outdoor activities in January.
The average night time low temperature will be around 4°C (40°F). Visitors will definitely require warm clothing for any outdoor activities in the evening.
Biarritz generally receives about 135mm (or about 5 inches) of precipitation in January. On average there are 16 days that see some form of precipitation and there are roughly 5 hours of sunlight each day.
The average temperature of the waters around Biarritz is 13°C (55°F).
Visitors to Biarritz in January will find that, because the weather is cool, they may want to take advantage of the many indoor activities in the city. One such activity is the Asiatica Museum of Asian Art where visitors will discover artwork from all across Asia including China, Japan, India and Tibet. The museum offers daily programs that give visitors in-depth information about the artworks on display and about the countries from which they originated.
Another fine activity in January is a visit to the Bar Jean, a landmark site in Biarritz that was built in the 1930's. Visitors will find simple, yet elegant, cuisine such as tapas and calamari served in a distinctly Spanish setting on an outdoor terrace. The Bar Jean is a spot not to be missed.
There are quite literally dozens of hotels and other accommodations to be found in Biarritz and, in January, one will not have a problem finding a place to stay. The Le Grand Large hotel is ideally located in the heart of Biarritz a mere 400 meters from the beach. Visitors will find these studio-apartment-style accommodations to be first-rate, with all of the amenities one could ever want including balconies overlooking the sea, a bar and restaurant within the hotel and complete kitchenettes in the rooms.
