How to get here

Europe mapThe fact that the Bidasoa region is at the crossroads of the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe has meant that this area has one of the best transport networks of the whole of the Basque Country, something that becomes quite clear at both Irun train station -an obligatory stop for all those trains going from Madrid to Paris, and also Hondarribia Airport -with its daily flights to Barcelona and Madrid. Additionally, there are motorways in France and Spain which lead directly to Bidasoa and marinas in Hondarribia and Hendaye. With their modern installations, offering 1,400 berths they are ideal for any sailors coming down the Atlantic coast and looking for an easy-access mooring spot that is storm-proof, thanks to the natural barrier of Mount Jaizkibel.
