Sopelana and extreme sports

Let's go surfing!

Sopelana is found on the closest coast to Getxo, bordered in the east by Plentzia. The beautiful beach and village of Sopelana make for one of the most impressive places along the Biscayan coast. In this zone, the Cantabrian Sea violently beats the cliffs, but respects the gulf formed by the beach, when there is no north wind. At this time, particularly during the summer months, the beach is transformed into one of the most popular surfing spots. This area is idea for many types of water and extreme sports. For several years, the surrounding mountains have been used to practice skydiving, paragliding and freefalling from a plane. Even if you’re not looking for this kind of rush, the Sopelana beach is surrounded by totally green cliffs, which are worth a visit. You can cross the beaches by foot on several different routes. You can then come back and observe the beach from strategically placed lookout points. There is on-site parking and several terraces within walking distance of the beach, where you can sit and enjoy the sea view.
