Your camping vacation in Fontarrabie
The fortified old town, overlooking the Bidassoa River, offers a superb view down to Hendaye beach. Parts of the ramparts, marked by cannonballs, drawbridges and moats, still remain. Its cobbled streets and architecture will take you back in time!
To get there, we recommend taking the shuttle bus from Hendaye marina. In just a few minutes and for less than two euros, aboard this small boat, you’ll arrive by sea at the foot of the old town. Tickets can be purchased on site, no need to reserve. It’s the ideal place to sample pintxos (Basque for “tapas”).
