Basque Country / Hendaye – Near the border with Spain, at the edge of the Basque Corniche, the charming seaside resort of Hendaye reveals a harmonious seafront dotted with numerous Neo-Basque villas dating from the early 20th century.
Discover its listed heritage buildings on a walk along the pleasant Boulevard de la MerOn the way, facing the ocean, you can take a break at the former Casino Croisière, built in the Neo-Moorish style, which nowadays contains shops, cafés and restaurants. An immense sandy beach, three kilometres long, with a view of the famous rocks known as the “Two Twins” – Les Deux Jumeaux – and the cliffs of the Basque Corniche add to the attractiveness of the area.

It ensures equal and fair access to the public areas for all users while improving safety and encouraging the expansion of tourism in the town.
