    We walked all the way from the railway station to Hendaye-Plage. For a part we walked along the bay which is the border to Spain. There were some old canons (picture 1) and other ruins (picture 3) in the park. Furthermore near the road of the park there is a war memorial (picture 4).

    From the shoreline you can see the Spanish coast and the city of Irun with its cathedral (picture 2). In some spot along the main road you will find a memorial to the deported people with a plaque in a very small park (picture 5).

    I'm sure it's pretty when the sun is out!

    From the looks of it, Hendaye has a long stretch of beach for sunbathers. When it's not raining, I'm sure it's beautiful. Hondarribia (Spain) is only about five minutes away on ferry, I had the chance to speak with a Spanish local and he told me that it's absolutely beautiful and sunny during the summer (he also told me that even the French prefer the Spanish side).

    This is "the" place for chocolate lovers! After we left the Hegoa café the rain and the gusty wind were still so bad that we decided to find another place for a drink. Under the arcade on Avenue des Mimosas we found this tiny place.

    The owner is a very lovely lady who gave us a few things to taste on top of our order. I don't remember what we paid but it was well worth it. The Paseo Chocolat is a cosy café with 4 tables only. Also if you look for a present, you are likely to find something there. The lady also offers courses of paintin on chocolate.

    This café is quite large and is located in the old casino right by the seaside. We chose a table with a view over the waves.

    We hoped for a late lunch/snack in form of a pizza but were told that pizzas weren't served in the afternoon. We found crepes on the menu though and they were available. I opted for a crepe citron at Euro 3.70 and a tea for Euro 3.00.

    It was a nice place to take shelter from rain and gusty winds.

    There is a easy to use metro line from San Sebastian/Donostia Amara to Hendaye. You can buy a return ticket from a machine in Donostia. Return tickets are cheaper than 2 single tickets. In May 2013 we paid Euro 3.65 for the return ticket (3 zones).

    The train station Donostia Amara is a 10-15 minutes walk south from the old town of Donostia. There is also a café in the station. The metro line takes you through Irun and Hendaia (Hendaye) is the end of the line. There is just a ticket office but a few metres outside you will spot the SNCF station with all the facilities and TGV connections.

    The journey from Donostia Amara to Hendaye takes around 40 minutes. As it is a metro there are no toilets on board.
