Hendaye is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department and Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of southwestern France.The town, France's most southwesterly and a popular seaside tourist resort, stands on the right bank of the River Bidassoa – which marks the Franco-Spanish border – at the point where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean in the French Basque Country.Hendaye has three distinguishable parts: la ville, which stretches from Saint Vincent's church to the area around the SNCF railway station and the industrial zone; la plage, the seaside quarter; and les hauteurs, the villas and camping sites on the hills between and behind the other two areas.HistoryHendaye acquired its independence from the Urrugne parish in 1598, when Saint Vincent's church was built. Get out of town with these interesting Hendaye side-trips: Bayonne (Cathedrale Sainte-Marie de Bayonne & Room Escape Games), Villa Arnaga (in Cambo les Bains) and Biarritz (Aquarium de Biarritz, Rocher de la Vierge, & more). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Plage d'Hendaye, head outdoors with Les Gorges de Kakuetta, don't miss a visit to La Citadelle de Saint Jean Pied de Port, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste.
