25 kilometers of breathtaking panoramas along the Basque coast.

The Sentier du Littoral offers 25 kilometers of breathtaking panoramic views along the Basque coast.

Accessible to the general public, it can be completed in stages or in its entirety in just one day(allow 7 hours), or over several days if you wish to take the time to discover the exceptional heritage of the towns and villages it passes through.

The trail has 8 main entrances (3 of which are in Hendaye) and 6 interpretation stations along the way.

Strollers can make informative, themed stops to learn more about the coast, surfing, fishing and the bay of Saint-Jean de Luz.

In the end, it stretches for some twenty kilometers between the thalassotherapy center at Hendaye and the Erretegia beach at Bidart.

Discover it and enjoy breathtaking panoramas!

These provisions do not apply to the Domaine d’Abbadia, which remains open.
