From Hendaye to Anglet, the beaches in the Pyrenees Atlantiques correspond to the different beaches of Pays Basque. Large stretches of sand over several hundred meters, cliffs, beaches for surfing or little protected bays are the environments you'll find for the beaches of Cote Basque.
Known by athletes, notably surfers, this coast also attracts families looking for beautiful preserved beaches.
The different destinations in the Pyrenees Atlantiques offer a typical setting with a basque architecture (houses made of colored wood) that are nice to look at. Near the bigger seaside destinations that are well known (Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Hendaye or Bidart) we find little destinations that are less well known like Guétary or Soccoa. A few kilometers from Biarritz, we enter the neighboring department where we find the Landes beaches that offer a different landscape with dunes and pine forests.
