This is a really good beach , but also very well organised with underground car park if visiting for the day - car parks well signed and underground, when you pop out on the sea front lovely. Shopping is good too if you like that sort of thing - no dogs on the beach, however as we always have our... More

For those coming from many a pebbly beach, this is stunning even in winter and a surfer's paradise. Plenty of interest with the rocks, stunning views up and down the coastline. Great restaurants and cafes, interesting shopping with little tat in site. This is how a seaside should be.

Great for walking, watching, and surfing (if you know what you are doing). Mild winters, fantastic waves.

Natural beauty, iconic place to visit in the amazing Biscay bay. The surf activities are introduce here more last century. It is very easy to fell in love with its sandy beaches, cliffs and therapeutic seawater. Lots of character and iconic place for surfing but it offers lots of enjoyment and amazing views.

One of my favourite beaches on Earth so far! It has its charm, and the ocean simply hypnotises! And don't forget to visit the cafes near the seaside, and taste local ice-cream - it is very delicious (pistachio and cerise are my favourites)!!!

When we visited it was miserable and raining, so we cut our walk short. The little bit we did see however was stunning. The coastline is dotted with interesting geological formations. They are like mother nature's work of art and they make spectacular views. I also loved the clever ways man made infrastructures were incorporated into the rock formations.

The place to see and be seen. You can have lunch watching the surfers all day, and the view is astonishing. You will need to walk there, which is a short distance, parking is a joke
