This is a must go if you're in Gexto. Picture-postcard corner, with great views, great atmosphere, great bars/restaurants and a wonderful, unexpected experience. Not to be missed.

We lived in Getxo, while staying in Bilbao and we walked the port-side of the area every day, it was a great walking trip. Port, old houses, beaches, sea, mountains, lighthouse, you get to see everything. Great time with a family.

Wonderful views, with a quaint town outside of Bilbao. I found it to be worth a day trip to enjoy the local vibe

Unexpected place un the middle if the town. Little white houses, narrow streets, a charming corner with two taberns where you can taste tapas. If you follow down the stairs the beach is waiting. Enjoy the old port.

People visiting Bilbao often think that a traditional fishing village is somewhat far from the city, but here in Getxo in the Portu Zaharra of Algorta (Old Harbour) you can know first hand how a traditional fishing village is. Quite busy on sunny weekends.

Can get the metro out from center of Bilbao to Algorta (E1.80) and a short walk from the metro station into the old fishing port on the side of the hill. Worth the trip and a few nice restaurants and bars as well

We took a bus from Bilbao to get here and cost 3.90 euros for 2 of us. If you have difficult finding the old port (we did) ask someone. Very pretty place and it was nice to get out of the city for a few...More

The views are great, and the old flavour of the place makes it a relaxing walk. I usually try to stop by and have a drink and a pintxo on the way to the acantilados. The neighbourhood is nice, and the windy roads are enjoyable.

We visited this area which is very beautiful and clearly very upmarket. Lots of amazing houses and a beautiful port area with good bars with reasonable prices
