Coarraze is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France.

It lies in the former province of Béarn.

Due to its proximity to the town of Nay it is often normally referred to with the double barreled name "Coarraze-Nay" (such as its use in "Union sportive Coarraze Nay" or the SNCF train station "Coarraze-Nay")
