Our opinion on the Santiago Beach

Adresse of the Santiago Beach : N-634 20750 Zumaia

The beach of Santiago in Zumaia is one of the widest sandy beaches of the Spanish Basque Country. Located at the mouth of the Urola river, the sand of this beach was brought by the river. Then a huge dike was built to preserve it.

Swimming is considered safe (waves are rare) and the beach is well equipped in the summer season (first aid station, pedalo rental, bar, sanitary…). The width makes it possible to bathe whatever the level of the tide.

Behind the beach and the dune space, there is the marina of Zumaia.

Access is directly via the national road (left bank of Zumaia).
