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.

A small and charming beach close to the town centre. Good sand and well sheltered from large waves. I would certainly go again.

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.
