Saint-Jean-de-Luz is one of the gateways of the coastal path.
This coastal path connects Bidart to Hendaye with a direct view of the ocean and a path that is dedicated to discovery and interpretation. The path extends along 25 kms with eight gateways : Bidart, Guéthary, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Ciboure, 2 in Urrugne et 2 in Hendaye.
Six points of interpretation can be found, treating various themes such as surfing, the Basque people and the ocean, the coastal landscape, the fishing, Saint-Jean-de-Luz/Ciboure's bay, the geology.
