About
Una autentica joya a 30 minutos de Bilbao. La opcion ideal es usar el metro y pasear por todo el pueblo hasta desembocar en el mar. Con suerte podra divisar el turista como practican y entrenan por el cauce del rio los deportistas. Ademas, el pueblo tiene unos cuantos restaurantes para disfrutar de su gastronomia. Imprescindible!

Big, clean beach but graffiti and illegal sellers spoil it
Jul 2019 • Family
Lovely big and clean surfing beach with lots of rubbish bins and is cleaned every morning. The only thing that spoils is is the quantity of graffiti on the buildings at the side of the beach and the number of non-Spanish men selling knock offs and cheap rubbish all along the pathway. I don't understand why local traders allow it. Surely there is a limit to the number of iPhone cases the world needs?

Surfing
Jul 2019 • Friends
A delightful setting with gentle breakers to learn to surf. Lifeguards on duty to keep watch. Local places to hire equipment and give instruction.

Relaxing Beach Day
Jun 2019 • Friends
Plentzia Beach is gorgeous! My friend and I got there late afternoon during the summer to avoid hordes of teenagers that frequent the scene. Sand is nice and soft, stretch of beach provided a tranquil walk, and the people watching from the bar near the beach was entertaining. The beach is the last stop on one of the lines using the Metro. Stick around for the sunset if you can...it's stunning!

Worth a visit if you're lucky enough to have a free sunny day in Bilbao
Jun 2019 • Solo
The beach itself isn't particularly spectacular but it is a nice thing to do if you want to relax/enjoy a sunny day in Bilbao. Standard amenities are present as per most Spanish beaches - toilets, showers, lifeguard, restaurants, ice cream. There were lots of families present, and at low tide there are smaller pools of water which can be enjoyed too.The scenery around the estuary/port is pretty nice too.

I was staying in the Old Town and the time it took to get to the beach was around 90 minutes. The metros to Plentzia come every 20 mins (1.90 for a single ticket), the journey takes around 45 minutes, and then there is a 20 minute or so walk to the actual beach. None of it was taxing or difficult but just to bear in mind if planning your itinerary.

A nice ride into Plentzia from the city
May 2019 • Couples
We escaped the busy city of Bilbao for the day to visit Plentzia. Take the metro to the very end stop (approx 35 mins) for only 1.90 per person single trip. Once there, this sleepy village has a lovely beach front and harbour to walk around and enjoy a drink. There isn’t tonnes to do here but it is nice for a walk around to see somewhere different.

At the end of Metro line you can find this lovely little town where the boats, the beach and bars are more than enough to enjoy a relax day out

DUll place in winter with no sun
Dec 2018 • Couples
I was quite disappointed to visit PLentzia beach , it was last month at the end of the year. NO sun, cloudy afternnon, quite dull, and a bity old fashioned place. Probably better in summer under a brand shiny and happy sun, we were not lucky that day!! the village is interesting , with stone walls and typical architecture of the Basque country.

A relatively quick subway ride costing £1.90 each person each way will get you from central Bilboa (railroad station) to the beach and end of the L1 line. A relatively short walk across a pedestrian bridge and through town takes you to a large beach. Great walk. Food, gift shops and restaurants abound in season. Enjoy.
