Transfermuga #enModeBasque !!!

1 Aug , 2016  

The sun has returned to the Basque coast and, with it, the tourists in search of the magnificent landscapes that the region offers. Being honest, all of them would like to discover the best surfing spots that the locals claim to know, while drinking a coffee after having caught some good morning waves… But it is not so simple!


Tourism information

We have decided to help you to look for good surfing spots, with the collaboration of a top level associate, the Departmental Tourism Committee. On one hand, because we have been working with the Department since the beginning on our Transfermuga project. On the other hand, because we believe that they do a great job. Thanks to their website www.paysbasque-tourisme.com, you can access all of the available information that makes it possible to discover or rediscover the Basque Country, well-known surf spots as well as secret ones too.

Passez en mode basque” (“Do things the Basque way”) is the invitation that goes out to tourists from all over the world. It is quite a cool way to praise the different activities that can be found, including:

However, above all, the website is a good tool for finding comprehensive information about activities and accommodation that makes it possible to plan holidays in the Basque Country.

However, above all, what we want to show you is the internet video that has really got people talking, and which has been viewed almost 500,000 times. This makes it possible to discover the Basque Country all over the world, and even to attract local people.


Transport Information

For our part, in collaboration with Transfermuga.eu, we continue in the same sector in order to offer you the greatest amount of possible information about transport offers (bicycle, train, bus, car shares…). And we want to offer you a few suggestions for summer:

  • Thanks to PassEusk, you will be able to use a large number of Transports64 bus lines and link up with the Topo in Hendaye or Irún. The return journey will only cost you €5.
  • At Hendaye station, if you want to take the Topo, you should wait calmly at the SNCF station and purchase tickets directly at one of the machines available. The departure timetable is available, there is also a newspaper kiosk, and you can enjoy a coffee while you await the departure of the Topo train, at platforms 03 and 33. If you are arriving by Train, do not forget that the PassBask gives you unlimited use of the TER+Topo for 48 hours for only €11.
  • If you are in a hurry to go from Bayonne and Biarritz to San Sebastian, we advise you to try the services offered by Alsa and Pesa: 1h (from Bayonne) or 45 min (from Biarritz) in order to get to San Sebastian… without having to park upon arrival. The price is around €7 or €8, therefore it is worth it. In Bayonne, the service leaves from La Place des Basques, and it Biarritz it goes from Floquet or from the airport.
  • When you arrive in San Sebastian, you can use the electric bike service that has been put in place by the Council. Even if you cannot compete with Bardet, who finished second in the 2016 Tour de France, you can at least discover the city and its innumerable places located at higher altitudes. If you have enough energy left, you can do the same in Anglet and Bayonne, but this time without electric assistance.
  • However, if you do not have a choice and have to park at all costs, we recommend the carparks in the outskirts (they are free) and the intermodal transport service with bus networks (all the geolocations are available here):
    • In Halle d´Iraty (Biarritz), to go to the centre of Biarritz,
    • In Minerva (Anglet), to go to the beaches with the free bus,
    • In Ficoba (Irún), to take the Topo and go to San Sebastian,
    • In Loiola (San Sebastian), to go to the centre.

Therefore, thanks to the offers of Transfermuga.eu and Paysbasque-tourisme.com you have no excuses not to come and discover the most remote spots in the Basque Country.
