Boat from Hondarribia to Hendaye

Hondarribia-Hendaye in just 7 minutes

The boat which links the two towns of Hondarribia and Hendaye has been working practically every day since 1993. The trip is made by our traditional boat, Rekalde, which departs every day from Paseo Butrón in Hondarribia and in just 7 minutes, offers a fast, convenient link to the French town of Hendaye, just across the bay.

This mode of transport is used on a daily basis by both tourists and locals alike. Moreover, dogs are permitted on board, along with up to a maximum of 5 bicycles per trip. The Hondarribia-Hendaye boat trip is the quickest and easiest way to travel between the two towns, since it bypasses all the traffic that generally tends to form on the roads, especially during the summer months. Moreover, passengers can enjoy a fantastic view of the three towns that together make up Txingudi Bay: Hondarribia, Irún and Hendaye.


€2,50 per person per trip. Tickets can be purchased on board.
