Our opinion on the Fort de Socoa Beach

Adresse of the Fort de Socoa Beach : Digue du marégraphe Socoa, Ciboure 64500 Socoa

Fort Socoa Beach is located at the end of Socoa, behind the small fishing port (very typical with beautifully coloured boats) and at the foot of the fort. Small (less than 100 meters), but it remains without doubt the most picturesque with the Fort in the background and a beautiful view of the Great Beach of St Jean de Luz. Thanks to the presence of the dam, it remains one of the quietest beaches of the Basque coast and is very popular with families. Note that it is supervised during the summer season.

To park, you must use the parking at the entrance of the resort (the Yacht Club car park) and then walk to the beach (less than 5 minutes).
