While staying in France, you will be close to the sublime Spanish village of Hondarribia (Fontarrabie) and the first mountains of the Pyrenees (la Rhune, Jaizkibel, le Pic du Mondarrain, etc.) which hikers love as much as the coastal path and its splendid steep cliffs.

What to do in Hendaye around the campsite?

Renowned for its magnificent preserved environment, the Basque Corniche (better known as “Corniche d’Hendaye“) offers a poignant landscape of beauty on the bay of Txingudi which alone will convince lovers of vacations by the sea. This legendary road leads to the most beautiful beach of the Basque Country and to the mythical rocks of the Twin Cities (the most proud pleonasm of the area!). Dive also into the Basque culture by admiring Pierre Loti’s Bakhar Etchea villa or the Moorish villa.

The most beautiful sandy beach of the Basque coast is indeed in Hendaye, in New Aquitaine. Between the ocean and the mountains of the Pyrénées Atlantiques, in the immediate vicinity of Spain, the exceptional natural environment of Hendaia (as it is called in the Basque Country) will charm you as much as the Domaine and the Château d’Abbadia or the typical Basque houses of Edmond Durandeau.

Activities in the French and Spanish Basque Country for your vacations

The French Basque Country, separated in the north from the Spanish Basque Country by the Bidasoa River and the Pyrenees, is a region of incomparable appeal. Famous for its gastronomy, its ferias, its superb wild landscapes and its typical architecture (Bayonne, Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Bidart, Guéthary, Biriatou), it seduces the lovers of culture, nature, but also sport. Surfing, Basque pelota, cycling, sailing, rugby are just a few examples to add to the walking which here takes the form of hikes, pilgrimages (such as the one to Santiago de Compostela) or family walks in the villages of the inland Basque country (Sare, Espelette, Itxassou, etc.).

Allow yourself a beautiful cross-border escapade to Hondarribia (Fontarrabie), a picturesque fishing village with the river shuttle “Marie-Louise” or to Donostia – San Sebastian (St. Sebastian is also known as “SanSé”), by taking the “topo” (Eusko tren) to discover the Bay of La Concha, Mount Igueldo, etc.
Even further, you will reach Bilbao, the most important city of Euskadi (“Basque Country” in Euskara, the Basque language) and the Guggenheim Museum, unmissable for holidaymakers who have time to visit the surroundings of Hendaye.
