Paradise for surfers watching for the right wave, but also for souls in search of a chic and relaxed lifestyle, the Basque coast is the good vibes destination par excellence!
Discover the spots from our fall/winter shoot as well as a selection of our favorite addresses.
Guéthary is the last gem of the Basque Coast, very well preserved, with few addresses. The clientele is rather sporty, they come to surf... or dream of surfing the famous Parliamentia wave, which starts from afar and lasts a very long time.
Impossible not to stop at the hotel Le Madrid , a charming 5-room hotel located a few minutes from Guéthary beach. It is also a restaurant and a bar, where regulars and yachtsmen meet from morning until evening. It was our HQ the first day, warm welcome, simple seasonal menu.
Also discover the Ederra store (which means "Beautiful" in Basque) which is a concept store of sustainable and responsible clothing, made in Guéthary in an ethical way.
Hundred Steps Beach in Bidart is located at the bottom of the Erretegia cliff between Erretegia Beach and Pavillon Royal Beach. Its access is through the cliff path. It is one of the most beautiful sites on the Basque coast.
Nestled in the hollow of superb cliffs, it has retained all of its natural environment. Little or no construction apart from the small room of the Lifeguards and the pretty crampotte, ideal for a drink while watching the waves.
