Tourist activities to discover around Club Hendaye

The heritage and cultural vibrancy of the Basque country have given rise to countless tourist activities, which you can enjoy from the 3-star Hendaye holiday club village. There are so many amazing ways to get away from it all! Just minutes away from this club-village in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, the Hendaye seafront with its boats, white sandy beach and villas with listed façades, is full of charm. Enjoy beautiful sunny walks on the coastal path. The nearby Pyrénées, as well as the famous and magnificent Domaine d'Abbadia nature reserve with 65 hectares of unspoilt countryside, are great places to observe nature and will delight anyone who loves wide open spaces.

You can be in Spain in less than ten minutes by boat.  Now there’s just the Bidassoa river to cross! Take a day trip or spend a few hours in San Sebastian, the European capital of culture in 2016 – it’s well worth the trip. Nearby, Hondarribia is THE place to go for those who love Basque gourmet food. Its streets lined with colourful houses and its ambiance make for some beautiful evenings during your holiday in the Basque country.
