Camping by the sea
in Hendaye

Have you been dreaming of trying your hand at surfing or taking a dip in the sea before everyone else thanks to the mild temperatures in this corner of New Aquitaine?

Our beachfront campsite in the Basque Country is the best place to take advantage of the surrounding maritime microclimate. Alternate between tanning in the sun and a refreshing breeze in the shade of a parasol to make the most of your vacation.

A 10-minute walk to the beach also means you can marvel at the sunset over the sea, which is then decked out in a thousand colors. And if you’d like to go for a swim without leaving the campsite, that’s also possible at our campsite in the Basque country with swimming pool!

During your seaside vacation in Hendaye, you can go scuba diving, take the shuttle to Fontarrabie, hire a boat or surf the waves at Hendaye Plage.
