On the Basque Coast you can enjoy a wide variety of activities. It is recognised as one of the main surfing destinations in Europe for learning and practising surfing. You can't miss the experience of sailing, taking an unforgettable swim or watching the sunset from the deck of a sailing boat.
As funny as it sounds
More than 70 years ago, surfing entered the peninsula through the Basque Country. Today, with more than 50 waves for all levels and an excellent network of professional services, the Basque Coast is recognised as one of the main surfing destinations in Europe for learning and practising surfing.
