The head of Biscay.

The town of Bermeo is the definition of a fishing village. This is the most populated urban area in the Urdaibai zone, a group of villages known for its rowing sports. Since it became a town, Bermeo has revelled in its status as ‘Head of Biscay’, and, despite its step backward in 1602, still maintains the image of the first fishing port of the whole Biscayan coast. It is full of history and local literature, dating back to 1050 and revolving around the San Juan Chapel on the island of Gaztelugetxe. This is where a fishing community started to settle permanently, in order to be able to go fishing on a daily basis. Today, ten centuries later, fishing is still the main source of income for the island of Bermeo. For several years, it has become one of the most appealing tourist destinations in Biscay. Its almost 3 kilometres of beach make it the ideal place for regattas in the summer months, and it also offers many beautiful and isolated coves, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the Cantabrian Sea.
