Ready to explore Hondarribia?

In the northeast corner of Guipúzcoa is the town of Hondarribia, a beautiful village that captures the charm of the Basque Country in its purest essence. This place has become a must for anyone who sets foot in the Basque Country, and it is so wonderful that it even has its own title of city.

Are you wondering what to see and which activities to do? It is the perfect coastal destination to discover the most spectacular Basque gastronomy, as well as impressive landscapes and architecture. It is situated very close to the capital of San Sebastian, specifically at the mouth of the Bidasoa River, and is particularly famous for its colour, tapas and fishing area.


Hondarribia puts at your disposal some of the best restaurants and bars where you can enjoy the best food, such as the restaurant Arroka Berri, the Alameda, the fishermen’s brotherhood (la Hermandad) or Sugarri itself at the Hotel Río Bidasoa.

In the famous La Marina neighbourhood you will also find the best establishments for lunch, dinner or to try the world famous elaborate Basque pintxos (tapas). And, after getting your strength back, don’t hesitate to visit this spectacularly beautiful fishing district. Admire the typical colorful Basque houses, with flowers hanging from the balconies, beautiful views… The perfect picture for your next big photo.


The rich history of the structures and buildings that we find in Hondarribia are incomparably beautiful, and it deserves to be visited. The old part of the town is surrounded by a magnificent medieval wall perfectly preserved. It is possible to access to its interior through two doors, being Santa Maria the most emblematic entrance door to the past of the city.

Stroll through the small cobbled streets and discover everything that every corner of the old town hides: Baroque style buildings, the Plaza de Armas and traditional colourful Basque houses. A place of historical, artistic and simply sensational interest.


Are you visiting Hondarribia in the sunny season? The spectacular beach of the town is very close to the center, next to the port and the maritime promenade, and a few minutes away from the hotel. Fine sand, calm waves and 800 meters of wide beach to enjoy.

Take off your shoes and dive into the calm Basque waters. Sink your feet into the sand, and spend a relaxed and fun day with your loved ones. Enjoy a place that, for many, is a refuge and a sanctuary for happiness.
