Hendaye Beach

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.

Staying in Hondarribia, visited for the day.
Amazing beach which goes on for miles. Flat, open, tons of rooms, shallow, warm and inviting.

You can find you own little space, not to be crowded, great people watching and excellent sailing in the distance!
Quite enjoyed it!!

Chateau d'Abbadie

Reviewed By Steve W - Reading, England, United Kingdom

Went to visit and look around the grounds. The grounds that you are allowed in are very small. Didn't visit inside....perhaps we should have done!Dear Steve, Abbadia offers wonderful decors inside. So sorry you didn't see it. Next time I hope ! J.S. Halty Manager

Navette Martime Hendaye - Hondarribia

Reviewed By DrJanetHall - Melbourne, Australia

It is so easy to ride the Navette from the port at Hondorribia to be in Hendaye very quickly. The only downside is that there is a 2 km walk to get to the facilities of the Hendaye town. The boat staff are very courteous and efficient.

Euskotren

Reviewed By brianthelion - Birmingham, England

Done the Bilbao to San Sebastián bit several times. Cheap and lots of stops with much industrial landscape punctured by some lovely little places. Do some research and enjoy exploring rather than just passing through everywhere.

Baie de Chingoudy

Reviewed By Tripse - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Xingudi bay invites you to walk along the beach and explore the different perspectives of Hendaye and Hondarrabia. It is enjoyable to observe the tides and stroll around the marina and boat yard. The views extend all along the Spanish coast.

Maison de la Corniche basque - Asporotsttipi

Reviewed By Marjorie J

Sentier du littoral passe par cette maison basque. Très intéressant mais vite visitée. Heureusement que la balade le long du sentier prend quelques heures et se révèle magnifique. Seule une partie le long de la route est moins agréable et peu rassurante. La vue sur l'océan n'en est pas moins belle!

Hegoa Cafe Hendaye

Reviewed By MaldonGastronomie - Maldon

Euros 7.50 for a so called "sundae" served in a small drinking glass. Small portions of poor quality ice-cream - not sure where the "cream" in the ice actually was. Wafers were soggy and tasted as though they were out of date, upon requesting fresh ones the same type were given. The waitress did not even apologise. Avoid. If you want decent ice-cream go to Saint Jean de Luz and see Monsieur Lopez for real ice-cream and sorbets.

Eglise Saint-Vincent-Diacre

Reviewed By Pierre G - Toulon, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, France

Les habitants la nomment "Bixintxo" ("Vincent", en basque).
Construite en 1598, détruite par des incendies, frappée par la foudre, victime des outrages du temps et des hommes, notamment durant les guerres contre l’Espagne entre 1793 et 1813, elle est reconstruite à la fin de l’Empire, puis profondément remaniée en 1968.
A l’extérieur : construction typique du style basque local, mur blanc et toiture de tuiles rouges dominée par une tour-clocher-porche percée d’arcades sur trois faces.
A l’intérieur : bas-reliefs polychromes du 17ème siècle ; tabernacle de 1550 ; beau Crucifix du 13ème ; retable doré de la Vierge du 16ème ; tableaux de l’école espagnole ; vitraux ; petite statuaire ; très bel orgue ; trois niveau de tribunes en bois sculpté.
Remarquez, dans la Chapelle du Saint-Sacrement, l’ex-voto en mémoire des marins du bateau hendayais le "Réveil-Matin" qui, de retour de Terre-Neuve, fit naufrage au large de Mimizan le 26 novembre 1859.
Inscrite aux Monuments Historiques par arrêté en date du 18 avril 2014.
Sur le parvis, ne manquez pas d’observer la fameuse Croix cyclique provenant de l’ancien cimetière et datant du 17ème siècle, objet de nombreuses recherches ésotériques depuis qu’elle fut révélée par Fulcanelli dans l’ouvrage "Le Mystère des cathédrales". La Croix est inscrite aux Monuments Historiques par arrêté en date du 19 mai 1925.
