Plage d'Hendaye

Clearly marked swimming areas, water quality, waste management… you will know it all! With water that reaches 23ºC in the height of summer, it is a privileged spot for families who seek plenty of space and safety. It is also a good choice for novice and seasoned surfers in search of sensations. The beach attendants propose facilities such as tent and deckchair hire and beach clubs for children. The beach of Hendaye offers bathing water quality A for several years.

Sentier du Littoral

From Bidart to Hendaye via Saint-Jean-de-Luz, the path of the coast is a easy hike allowing the discovery of exceptional panoramas. This path of a little more than 20 kilometers browses the coast of Bidart until Hendaye via Saint-Jean-de-Luz and by following the Basque Corniche of Urrugne.

Digue du Port de Socoa

The sea wall defence of Socoa is nice place with a little hidden beach. Here when there are not storm you can walk on it and have a unique view on Saint-Jean-de-Luz and the bay. Either you can watch the waves hurt the sea wall defence. You can only go walking on it.

We were there in the afternoon and the waves were hitting the wall... It was spectacular and amazing.

Plage des Cavaliers

Reviewed By Lespreau - Atlanta, United States

I truly love all of the beaches in the Anglet area. Our challenge in the past has been the number of tourists; this time was the waves. The surf was rough for several days, and daily surveillance by lifeguards had not yet begun. I advise going when there are lifeguards if any member of your group is entertainingly the idea of going in the water—even if just for a few yards or meters.
