Aupa Hendaia - Good place to surf when everything on the cost is soaked.
Works well at dusk because of a nice on shore breeze, This makes a quick and tubular wave at any size in summer time.
Lots of spanish guys and locals.

Shelterd - Since this is the spot to go to when everything closes out its not really a summer spot. in summer the waves
are generaly small and there are lots of swimmers who are in a special swimmerszone where the biggest waves break. so you might wanna consider other spots if the swell is small.

Hendaye is a saviour - Hey guys, just to say Hendaye is a saviour, went there recently cause everything in Biaritz and Hossegor where just maxing out and really onshore and stormy. I dunno if the wind changed or what but this place was going real nice. I think it was at low tide, there was an offshore reef which we surfed which quite good. Loads of beggineers (perfect for them) but theres room for everyone as its a big beach. The standard of local surfing with the locals around here is really good, one guy pulled a massive 360 air just of the left hand side. There is also a really good but cheap sea food restraunt, on the left of the beach too. Cheers Alex

Henday eNov 2003 beginners/intermediate - Flew to Biarritz from London for weekend. Our surf instructor (Pol - very good) took us to this beach with a longboard each. For beginners like us (going on intermediate) was a good wave: enough power, but not too much power, plus regular waves, so made it relatively easy to practice technique. Learnt a lot.

Would come again.

Big Hendaye - October 31 Hendaye was firing, 8 hollow feet very powerful. I didn't urfed here since last winter & was very surprised. Hope some more this winter!!!

hendaye - surfed hear last sunday, quite crowded especially at high tide when the beach gets smaller but as the page says probably cos the rest of the coast was thumping. solid 4-5ft surf though and a really nice town & beach... Locals seemed friendly enough unlike some other places.

Gora Hendaia? - This spot is not working very often, and Hendaye can be considered more a "family" beach...
However, it is a good place to learn how to surf or to go when waves are too big in Bidart or Anglet. There are no many sufshops there, just one place to rent a board...so bring all you need. I always had a hard time finding wax in that place...even if I live there!
