The Coastal Path

In Bidart the coastal path begins on Erreteguia beach.
A sign on the left invites you to climb the hill by the stairs.
At the Chapel of St. Joseph there is a multi-lingual signpost about the surf and the waves.

A great way to discover the Basque coast, the beaches and cliffs overlooking the mountains, which takes you all the way to Hendaye, about 25kms to the south.
