Sardine Festival, Pays basqueI’ve already written about Guéthary, the Pays basque coastal town where my family and I vacationed last year.

One of the last evenings staying in Guéthary, we stumbled onto a sardine festival being held on a panoramic point along the sea, so we decided to join in.

We had a great time sitting on picnic tables, eating our sardines and our dessert of gateau basque – all accompanied by local wines.

And the best part was the stunning sunset that accompanied our dinner, always wonderfully dramatic along this beautiful coastline (see photos below).

A great way to wrap up our holiday!
