Must visit

Large, clean and imposing. Take your swimming suite (and your combi if you are cold), sunscreen and you are ready. Leave your hotel early if you need to search for parcing.

An absolutely beautiful beach with a lively atmosphere. Good for all ages and people-watching. It was a perfectly clear day to enjoy the waves and clear waters.

There was a surf competition on when I visited...this added to the flavour. Beautiful beach with great waves and golden sand

Fantastic large beach with plenty of surfing happening. There is a park with switchback paths overlooking the beach. It also seemed that this beach was a little less crowded than the others in town.

If I could give this attraction a 7 put of 5, I would. This is one of the most beaches I have ever seen. A beautiful walk with lots to see also no the way from surfers to statues.

So beautiful. The views, the rocks, the way buildings are constructed into the rocks, and always the dramatic sea. I love the ocean, so this is a fabulous area to explore. And of course, the are restaurants and cafes everywhere, in Spain and France. (We were primarily in France to Hondarribia.)

We have been many times. Different times of the year I honestly love the spot. Might get crowded in summer time. Avoid high tide as there is no beach during this time.

Lovely to stroll along the promenade and watch all the surfers and to return later in the evening to view a breathtaking view of sunset.
