Plage d'Hendaye, Hendaye

4.5
In France's most southwestern town, right on the Spanish border, lay down a towel and sunbathe or enjoy the water at Plage d'Hendaye. From the beach, you can see the famed Jumeaux rocks, which have become an emblem of Hendaye. Some people consider the town a less expensive, quieter version of Biarritz; it's similarly picturesque but not as touristy.

  • Our favorite beach in all Aquitaine. Biarritz has glitz, St Jean de Luz has the glamour even Anglet and Seignosse have much to their credit - but for our 9 & 12 yr old, Hendaye is the safest, cleanest and most convenient of them all. Get here early 9am and claim a spot outside Hotel Valencia for an easy coffee / lunch spot.
  • One of the best beaches in France. The beach is 3 kilometres long, made of fine white sand. Most of the times, waves are very gentle, all the family can have a bath or swim without danger. For this reason also, it’s a perfect place for surf initiation and intermediary practice. Some sections of the beach are monitored by life guards. There are a few beach clubs for children (Neptune, Mickey). You can rent easily a tent or an armchair to relax a few meters from the Ocean.
  • Spacious, surfing paradise
  • My favorite beach of France 😍 sand just fantastic hot sea and little dangerous for small enough places to not be on top of each other but do not tell anyone otherwise everyone will come and the page would lose its charm a nice and long walk can be made along the beach only negative point the paying places all around
