Saint-Jean-de-Luz is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France.
It is in the traditional province of Lapurdi of the Basque Country.
Points of interest include the Jardin botanique littoral Paul Jovet and the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church.
St-Jean-de-Luz is divided into two adjacent towns by the Nivelle River - St-Jean-de-Luz to the north of the river and harbour, and Ciboure to the south.
The town is still an active fishing port, with anchovies, tuna and sardines being the main fish caught, although leisure and tourism now play a large part of the towns activity, the church is a fine example of a Basque church, with its tiered wooden 'Romeo and Juliet' balconies running along on each side.
Jean de Luz has a very nice beach 'in the town centre'. The town itself has a large number of small shops, and streets filled with interesting houses and architecture.
While there are of course new buildings in the surrounding area, St-Jean-de-Luz has so far avoided much of the coastal excess that blights so many beachfront towns, and is a charming place to visit.
