Overview

Clearly marked swimming areas, water quality, waste management… you will know it all ! With water that reaches 23ºC in the height of summer, it is a privileged spot for families who seek plenty of space and safety. It is also a good choice for novice and seasoned surfers in search of sensations. The beach attendants propose facilities such as tent and deckchair hire and beach clubs for children. The beach of Hendaye offers bathing water quality A for several years.

Great beach and would definitely visit again. Hired surf boards as beach is great for beginners and intermediaries. Unspoilt by tacky beach bars. Can get busy parking along prom. Would recommend using tent or parasol as quite exposed. Beach is well supervised by lifeguards.

Good and large sand beach with lifeguards, but a lot of people in the main season. Very good for surfing as well (even for beginners).

A lot of people but very little space. Hendaye is a place where it is very HARD to PARK. You better arrive early...
