Information of Interest

From San Sebastian we can reach Hondarribia via the A-8 tollroad, or by taking the N-I main road. Upon arrival, cross the town from east to west and head towards Kai Zaharra (1), an area where the fishing port was formerly located, and from where we can take a speedboat to the port of Sokoburu in Hendaia. Benta Zaharra is located in La Marina, a colourful, popular district of fishermen, with its typical houses with crisscrossed wooden facades and painted balconies.
Returning to the entrance to Hondarribia via the N-638 main road, going past the Amute district and the airport, making a second stop at the plain of Jaizubia (2). This natural space, recently recovered, is at the foot of Mount Jaizkibel, and is surrounded by marshes.

Returning to Jaizubia along the road to Irun, we shall pass through Mendelu district and head towards Marismas de Txingudi (3) ecological park, a natural reserve and the second most important Basque wetland. Txingudi Ekoetxea Interpretation Centre proposes an itinerary covering about two kilometres, where we can contemplate all the habitats existing in the area: Freshwater pools, plains, wooded areas, lagoons... To this end there are panels with explanations, plus lookout points and towers suitable for the observation of migratory birds and of the landscape.

From Irun we shall head towards Santiago bridge, which will take us to the neighbouring town of Hendaia. From the train station we can reach Caneta port (4) via Boulevard du General De Gaulle and Rue du Port. From the port, set in Txingudi bay, we can also take a pleasant stroll towards Sokoburu, via Boulevard de la Baie, close to the Isle of Birds.
