The finest sandy beach on the Basque coast is to be found at Hendaye, in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region of France. Between the ocean and the mountains of the Atlantic Pyrenees, in the immediate vicinity of Spain, the exceptional natural environment of Hendaia (as it’s called in the Basque Country) will charm you just as much as the Domaine and Château d’Abbadia or the typical Basque houses of Edmond Durandeau.

Immerse yourself in Basque culture by admiring Pierre Loti’s villa Bakhar Etchea or the Moorish villa during your stay at our Hendaye campsite.

Vacation activities in the French Basque Country

The French Basque Country, separated to the north from the Spanish Basque Country by the Bidassoa River and the Pyrenees, is a region of incomparable appeal. Renowned for its gastronomy, its férias, its superb wild landscapes and its typical architecture (Bayonne, Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Bidart, Guéthary, Biriatou), the region appeals to culture, nature and sports enthusiasts alike. Surfing, pelota, cycling, sailing and rugby are just a few examples, in addition to hiking, pilgrimages (such as to Santiago de Compostela) and family outings in the villages of the inland Basque country (Sare, Espelette, Itxassou, etc.). There’s no better way to explore the Basque Country than by renting at our Hendaye campsite. One of the best open-air hotels in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques offers comfortable accommodation to make the most of your vacation.

Activities in the Spanish Basque Country during your stay?

Treat yourself to a cross-border trip to the picturesque fishing village of Hondarribia (Fontarrabia) on the “Marie-Louise” river shuttle, or to Donostia – San Sebastian (or San Sebastian as it’s known), where you can take the “topo” (Eusko tren) to discover the Bay of La Concha, Mount Igueldo and much more.

Even further afield, you’ll reach Bilbao, the most important city in Euskadi (“Basque Country” in Euskara, the Basque language) and the Guggenheim Museum, a must for holidaymakers with time to visit the Hendaye area. As you can see, the location of Camping Ametza makes it one of the best campsites/hotels in Hendaye for discovering the Basque Country.

Great campsite, everything has been thought of. The shower system is ideal and very clean. Each pitch has its own key to access its individual shower. Perfect hygiene An ideal campsite on a human scale. Close to the centre: 15 min from the port of Hendaye We had breakfast for 8€/person and it was very good. The staff are very friendly and pleasant. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Excellent stay at Ametza. Great swimming pool, water at 28°C, perfect hygiene. The private sanitary facilities are really ideal, with showers, washbasins and WCs for each pitch. Cleanliness is certainly a priority at this campsite, everything is spotless. Not even a cobweb! What’s more, there’s a restaurant on site and a nice little grocery shop. The staff are attentive and very friendly. This campsite really deserves its 4 stars!
Very good campsite, well deserving of its stars. Very friendly staff. Personalised sanitary facilities. Perfect restaurant. Personally, this is still the best campsite in the 11 years I’ve been going on holiday in a caravan!
