Village of Zarautz
A big beach, wild waves and a charming historic quarter. And all surrounded by natural beauty.
The surf paradise.
Discover this old fishing village on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea, turned into a tourist resort. About 20 kilometres west of San Sebastián, it is one of the most important towns in Guipúzcoa. Enjoy its spectacular beach, one of the prettiest in the region. And, if surfing is your thing, you can do some or watch others riding the waves from your towel on the beach. There's a reason this beach is the venue for the World Surfing Championship. Venture into the historic quarter and you will see mediaeval buildings, such as the church of Santa María la Real. Or the Palace of Narros in Renaissance style. A pleasant walk, perfect for learning part of the history of the Basque Country. A good recommendation? Take the path that leads to the top of Talaimendi and enjoy the panoramic view. You will see a perfect postcard picture of the place, including the typical Basque farmhouses.
