    Aux portes de Bayonne, les barthes de la Nive vs attendent. Balade à pied ou à vélo, musée, centre de documentation, tables de pique nique, plusieurs découvertes avec poste d observation pour les oiseaux. Calme, sérénité et fraîcheur pour cette promenade qui fait le bonheur de tous

    A très peu du centre ville de Bayonne, havre de paix et découverte ne notre si belle nature. En période de migration il y a des observatoires pour observer les oiseaux. Accueil sympathique, toilette public, musée éducatif pour oes jeunes enfants, bref une étape indispensable.
