I am planning to walk from Hendaye/Irun at the end of August. I would appreciate any advice fellow pilgrims can give on what I can expect in relation to how busy it might be, accommodation, and weather.

I've walked the Norte at the beginning of September
The beach resorts on the coast will still be very popular and so accommodation might be scarce and/or expensive
It can also be very warm and there are fewer sources of water than on the Frances
