Biarritz is a wonderful little beach-resort town in the south of France. People from all over Europe head to Biarritz in the summer because the weather is absolutely gorgeous and the beaches are among the finest in all of France. March is still considered winter time so there generally aren't too many tourists in Biarritz then.
Visitors can expect an average daily high temperature of around 14°C (57°F) in March. Though warming up, it is still too cool to really enjoy the waters and the beaches.
At night, the temperature dips to around 7°C (45°F) on average. Visitors will need to pack warm clothing for their stay in Biarritz in March. Long sleeved shirts, long pants and jackets are advised.
Winter in the south of France is rather wet and, in March, the average amount of rainfall is around 113mm or 4½ inches. There are roughly 16 rainy days with approximately 7 hours of sunshine per non-rainy day.
The average temperature of the waters off the coast of Biarritz is 13°C (55°F).
The weather is starting to warm up in March, but it is still too cold to enjoy swimming on the beaches, at least without a neoprene wetsuit. However, visitors can always take advantage of the sunny days and go for walks on the beaches. Die-hard surfers might like to take advantage of the nice waves that the beaches have to offer, as Biarritz is the surfing capital of France.
Biarritz also offers visitors 12 golf courses within a 30km radius of the city centre and March is an excellent time of the year to take advantage of the lack of visitors to the links. Visitors taking a golfing holiday to Biarritz will want to look into getting a Biarritz Golf Pass which can offer exceptional deals on some of the finest courses in the area.
The Hotel de Silhouette is a nice and affordable place to stay in Biarritz. It's located just 300 meters from the beach and 800 meters from Le Phare Golf Club. Amenities include free breakfast, free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, flat screen TV with cable and a terrace with private garden. Guests will find that there is a free city tour bus that stops directly in front of the hotel every 10 to 15 minutes throughout the day.
