Capital of the Basque country, Bayonne nestles perfectly at the confluence of the Nive and Adour rivers, close to both Biarritz and the Atlantic Ocean. During your camping holiday near the Atlantic Pyrenees, soft fine sand and waves will bring their own special rhythm to your stay in south-west France. In a setting like this, renting a camping pitch or a comfortable cottage is quite simply the best possible way to get close to nature and rediscover the important things in life!

Book your spot for a campsite holiday in Bayonne

Not far from the Spanish border, in the heart of the Basque country, the town of Bayonne enjoys a unique historical and cultural heritage. Officially recognised as a “Town of Art and History” in 2012, the subprefecture of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department is steeped in charm. The city walls, the Château-Vieux or the Basque Museum are just some of the authentic treasures that you really should find time to discover during your campsite stay in Bayonne. Known to all for its age-old traditions such as the famous Basque game of pelota, the Courses Landaises, corridas and of course the Basque fêtes, this is also a town that will delight foodies young and old. So as you tread its magical streets, call into a local restaurant with its red and white flag to sample the renowned Gâteau Basque, Bayonne ham or succumb to the enticing scent of one of its many chocolate-makers. A camping holiday in Aquitaine is the perfect moment to offer your taste buds a real treat!
And back at your 4 or 5 star Sandaya campsite, a host of other activities await: so after a busy day riding the Atlantic waves, enjoy the open-air swimming pools for a mellow moment of relaxation in the sunshine. You love an active start to the day? Try a touch of sport to get you up and moving! Make it a date for an aquagym lesson in the covered and heated swimming pool or head for the multisports ground and a football tournament. In the shade of the pine trees challenge the family to a game of pétanque or have a fun knock-about on the tennis court! Your youngsters will particularly appreciate all the activities offered in the campsite’s free mini clubs. It’s already time for bed, so choose where yours will be from amongst our mobile home, chalet and cottage rental options!

Seaside campsite

Vibrant, alive and in perpetual movement, the heart of Bayonne beats to the rhythm of the nearby Atlantic rollers. Enjoy a gentle walk along the banks of the Adour with the family, and follow the river all the way to the sea. And when you arrive, discover the impressive beaches of soft fine sand, each more beautiful that the others! So pick your spot, spread out your towel and settle down for a fabulous picnic under the radiant sun of south-west France. Once the meal is finished it’s time for games in the water and bathing! And don’t forget your mask and snorkel, in Bayonne you’ll discover a sublime unspoilt coastline guaranteed to ensure you’ll never stop loving your holiday in the Basque country!

The beaches of the Basque coast

From Bayonne through Anglet, France’s “Little California”, to Biarritz, no less than ten beaches of soft fine sand stretch seamlessly along a shoreline backed by green open spaces and playgrounds for the children. Plenty of keen surfers and many who prefer peace and tranquillity have already found their own favourite spot here to enjoy bathing or relaxing to the sound of the ocean waves. To the north of the coastal resort the little La Barre beach is first in line, at the mouth of the River Adour. Fans of board sports will naturally choose the path to the wild Les Cavaliers and Les Dunes beaches, amongst the most unspoilt along the coast. For a fun game of beach volleyball or to fly your kite, head for the Les Corsaires and La Madrague beaches, particularly appreciated by families. And, finally, admire the majestic cliffs of the Cap Saint-Martin and the Biarritz lighthouse from the romantically named La Petite Chambre d’Amour beach, to the south of the resort.
