Create an itinerary including Plage d'Hendaye
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.

  • Really large beach. Enough space for surfers, sunbathers, families... Clean and peaceful place, great view on the bay (Hondarribia on one side, the "2 twins" on the other side).

  • We visited twice and had a lovely walk, sat for a while, watched the many many surfers catching waves. Clean beach.

  • Great beach for families with kids. gentle waves lot of space to play, and a beautiful dawn…
  • Safest beach in the area due to the gradual slope into the sea. If you are swimming only stay between the flags to steer clear of the surfers
  • Beautiful French beach with a large sand beach and great views of the coast line. Nice restrooms, street food, cafes, shopping, surfing schools, and children camps.
  • Excellent
  • 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.
