© Hendaye Tourisme

Hendaye is a French town on the border with Spain, directly across the river from Hondarribia. Its sprawling 3 km beach with its fine sand has something for everyone, families and surfers alike. The town is also full of pretty Basque-style houses and is the birthplace of the style known as Neo-Basque. And we mustn’t forget to mention its impressive castle, the Château Abbadia, on the outskirts of town. On top of all of this, Hendaye also boasts a coastline of impressive beauty, characterised by rocky flysch formations, easily accessed from the paths wending their way along the coast.
