Zarautz in San Sebastian is an expanse of beautiful golden sand that can appear to stretch on forever; at 2.5 km it is the longest beach in the province of Gipuzkoa.

The focus here is really on water sports, with almost all tastes catered for, and especially on surfing. Zarautz is on the world surf circuit and a surf championship meets here annually, with people from across the globe drawn by the swell of the waves.

Aside from this it’s a great beach in a good location for those looking to relax with plenty of bars, restaurants and long walks to follow in the area.
