About Zumaia

Zumaia is a sun-drenched coastal town in the heart of the Basque Country. Set between rugged mountains and the sparkling Bay of Biscay, the town combines stunning scenery with excellent cafes, restaurants and tapas bars. Sunbathe on golden-sand beaches, stroll around the atmospheric Old Town and visit a UNESCO Global Geopark.

Things to do in Zumaia

Discover dramatic natural landscapes in the Basque Coast UNESCO Global Geopark. From soaring coastal cliffs to dense forests and flower-strewn meadows, the park protects a patchwork of Basque Country ecosystems. Trails wind through the park and make it easy to explore on foot.

Swim and sunbathe beneath towering flysch cliffs on Playa de Itzurun. From the water, you’ll get eye-popping views of the sheer cliffs. It’s easy to see how this stunning beach won over “Game of Thrones” location scouts. Nearby Playa de Santiago is set at the mouth of the Urola River and backed by rolling dunes. The sandy beach was once a popular stop for pilgrims walking the Santiago de Compostela trail.

Learn about the unique geology of the Basque Country at the Algorri Interpretation Centre. The small but engaging museum features exhibits on the natural wonders around Zumaia, including the impressive flysch cliffs formed over millions of years. Enrich your visit with guided walks and scenic boat tours offered by the museum.

Work up an appetite with outdoor adventures in Zumaia, then refuel with delicious Basque Country cuisine. Try local specialties like “marmitako” tuna stew, octopus soup cooked in a rich tomato sauce and charcoal-grilled fish. Wash down your meal with a bottle of Basque-style apple cider or a glass of “txakoli” sparkling white wine. Save room for a slab of Basque cheesecake, a classic dessert with a creamy centre and caramelised top layer.
