They are regularily going and interweaved somehow with the spanish counter organization. You pay when leaving the boat. Make sure you have cash.

This ferry runs across the river on the coast to Hendiribia in Spain. Its an interseting wallk around an historic costal town, with lots of great Spanish restauraunts, we went across for lunch. It runs more often in summer, so make a note of the...More

We wanted to take the navette. But there was a line waiting. The boat comes every half an hour. It would be more than an hour waiting in full burning sun with no shades. So we didnt go. Can not review this further except my...More

A convenient way to connect Hendaye in France to Hondarribia in Spain by crossing the Bidasoa estuary from the marina to the centre of the Spanish town. The boats are frequent and reasonably priced and there are discounts for groups. Do not forget your identity...More

Boats seem to run every 15 minutes. The journey was uneventful. Good views of both towns while crossing. Both good places to visit. Only €1.90 each way.

Worth using the navette and also doing the walking tour of the town from the tourist office. Interesting town with historical interest and good shops (cheaper than France for many things).

Great shuttle between Hendaye and Fontarrabie, every 15 minutes. A nice medieval town! Winter hours are shorter.

The little boats cross regularly between Hendaye and Hondarribia and you can feed the fish that live in the harbour with stale baguette while you wait your turn. Lovely street full of Tapas bars in Hondaribbia and a really good ice-cream shop too. The navette...More

It is so easy to ride the Navette from the port at Hondorribia to be in Hendaye very quickly. The only downside is that there is a 2 km walk to get to the facilities of the Hendaye town. The boat staff are very courteous...More
