From the promontory (atalaye, in Basque), Biarritz-la-Belle, Queen of all beaches, stands tall and proud. And with it, the water, the shore, the sun, the swimmers and that effortlessly chic atmosphere, where an air of relaxation and lightness can be felt on a backdrop of iodised blues.

Atalaye was born out of our deep commitment to that particular landscape and of our drive to create fashion pieces that are elegant, ethical and responsible.

Incredibly timeless, our men’s swim shorts were designed to last through summers and trends. Demanding when it comes to quality and kind to our planet, they are made from long-lasting recycled materials, specifically suited for bathing, whereas their short length and comfortable cut will be perfect for all body types and summer activities.

We’ve invented Atalaye just the way we live – by striving to have the least impact possible on nature and the sea, while enjoying all of the pleasures they have to offer.

The only impact we wish to make is to create elegant, happy memories as you bathe in the sea, in Biarritz, and everywhere else.

Our swim shorts are made in Portugal, in factories that specialise in swimwear. The fabrics we use are made locally, in the region of Porto, and specifically for bathing. The weaving is dense for sturdiness and their material is fast-drying. Boasting antibacterial and anti-UV properties, they’re also very resistant to chlorine.

For quality and comfort, all the stitching on our shorts is doubled, which prevents friction and wear.

Our shorts have been conceived with quality in mind for a high-end finishing touch, that will bring you satisfaction however you use them.

Atalaye is also a way to celebrate that endless life bath, which is the ocean. It is our inspiration, the blue that sparks our creativity. It sets a balance between the land and the sky. We support Sea Shepherd France and are proud to donate 1% of our revenues to the protection of the marine environment.
