The Coastal Trail from Bidart to Hendaye on the Basque Coast

Amazing panoramic views during an unforgettable walk

A nice easy walk of 25 km (about 6h), on a marked trail with a great view of the ocean, interspersed with a few crossings in urban areas, particularly in St Jean de Luz and Ciboure allowing you to discover the rich heritage: the Maison de Louis XIV, the Maison de l'Infante, the Fort de Socoa, the Convent of the Recollects .....

If the ocean is omnipresent, you will also discover a variety of landscapes along the coastal path, from the lush countryside of the Basque coast to the wild perpendicular cliffs.

Starting from Bidart, the panorama is even more grandiose because you face the local mountains, the Rhune, the Three Crowns and the Jaizkibel.
