Basque Coast

The Basque Coast is 35 km of beaches and cliffs. From Bayonne to Hendaye, the coast is dotted with small fishing ports, half-timbered houses and green hills. Anglet is several beaches in one along a pine forest. The Chiberta forest is decorated with green paths intended for families, walkers and sportsmen. Biarritz is a breathtaking view from the Lighthouse, the famous Rocher de la Vierge, or the legendary Côte des Basques, frequented by surfers from all over the world. Bidart and Guéthary, on the cliff side, offer a perfect example of the Basque village, with its red or green houses, its church and its pediment. Saint-Jean-de-Luz is an authentic fishing port in a splendid bay, sheltered by the Sainte Barbe hill. A little further south, Hendaye and the charm of a border.
