Aquarium
“A great, extensive display of marine life. The sharks are a firm favourite. You can also witness the seals being fed every day at 5pm. Kids love this place, which is a perfect activity for a rainy day!”

“One of our favourite restaurants - we have been going here for many years. Absolutely stunning views down the coast to Spain and over the surf beach of Côte des Basques in Biarritz. Delicious food - a great choice of fusion dishes, and we highly recommend the maki and the nachos! Also a great place for breakfast or brunch. Very friendly staff. ”

Lighthouse
“Historic lighthouse that you can go up for just a couple of Euros per person. Well worth the views on a clear day. Be warned thought that it closes if the winds are too high, and also is closed for lunch, and there is limited space at the top. ”

Castle
“Precioso emplazamiento y también interesante la visita guiada. Me gusta mucho pasear por todo el dominio de Abadie y descubrir sus pequeñas calas y caminos. Una zona protegida por donde va el camino del litoral hacia San Juan de Luz, aconsejo de todas formas coger ese camino en San Juan de Luz en la zona de Santa Bárbara porque desde Hendaya para mi gusto va al lado de la carretera y se escuchan los coches, en cambio la zona desde San Juan de Luz es más tranquila y variada.”
