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. Venture out of the city with trips to Biarritz (Rocher de la Vierge, Aquarium de Biarritz, & more) and Bayonne (Room Escape Games & Cathedrale Sainte-Marie de Bayonne). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Plage d'Hendaye, make a trip to Quai Maurice Ravel, take in the spiritual surroundings of Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste, and tour the pleasant surroundings at La Cote des Basques.
