Hendaye Sunsets…

Hendaye is a seaside town in the French Basque Country, located on the border between France and Spain. It is well known for its beautiful sunsets, a product of its location to the east of hills along the Bidassoa River in Spain that block the sun for a half hour or so before it sets.

Rudyard Kipling described Hendaye’s sunsets in his poem ‘A Song of French Roads’:

“Now Fontarabia marks our goal,/And Bidassoa shows,/At issue with each whispering shoal/In violet, pearl and rose,/Ere crimson over ocean’s edge/The sunset banners die…/Yes-Twenty takes to Bourg-Madame,/But Ten is for Hendaye!”

The photos in this post were taken between May 2017 and August 2020.
