Zarautz is one of Spain’s most beautiful surfing locations with steady waves. The sandy beach stretches out over 2 kilometers and counts several sandbanks which makes it an ideal spot for both beginning and experienced surfers. You can stroll on the boardwalk, and whether you have a drink on one of the cozy terraces, sit on a bench overlooking the beach with a nice ice-cream, or enjoy some fresh pulpo or txuleta in one of the many restaurants, you will always be able to watch the surfers showing their tricks. Zarautz is without a doubt the European surf mecca!
But the center of town also has a lot to offer! Discover one of the many tapas bars and enjoy it's amazing pintxos, for once, leave the cerveza. Instead try a sidra or txakoli, or go loose in one of the surf shops and give yourself a complete surf makeover!
Zarautz is the ideal base camp for anyone who likes to broaden his horizons. This small town located in the heart of the Basque Country, offers lots of opportunities for nature and culture lovers, but also for shopping addicts and party animals. The public transport connects the cities with the surrounding villages. So, if one day you get up in the morning with a magnificent view on a ... totally flat ocean… no problem! Take a day off and visit the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, go shopping in San Sebastian and end the evening with a lovely dinner in one of the asadores of Getaria.
