Itzurun Beach in Zumaia
Explore more nearby places in Basque Community, Spain

The hazy stillness of the cliffs

Zumaia is a little town in the Basque Country, established in the Northern part of Spain – about an hour away from Bilbao. The area has a couple of stunning beaches, well-known among tourists from all over the world – Itzurun, and Santiago.

Itzurun beach offers a dramatic geological spectacle – more than 150 meters of vertical rocks and limestone cliffs, created by the continuous erosion of the sea. The phenomenon is called flysch – a progression of sedimentary rocks that advance from the water depths to the shallow waters and the beach.

Can you feel the enchantment yet? Because that’s just the beginning.

More about the beach

Itzurun beach covers around 300 meters of length, with golden sands and a massive wave flow.

It is acknowledged for its inspiring scenery – hazy and bizarre rock strata beaten by the tides and extending into the sea.

The beach is located close to the urban area of Zumaia, and it is one of the most preferred sightseeing places for both the locals and the tourists.

Things to do around

Itzurun beach offers a wide range of activities apart from sightseeing, photography, and sunbathing. Many visitors choose to engage in some of the following:

  • Surfing and windsurfing;
  • Boating and canoeing;
  • Bodyboarding and jet skiing;
  • Recreational, sport, and underground fishing;
  • Scuba diving, and more.

The beach has a professional lifeguard service from 10:30 AM to 7:30 PM. However, visitors are asked to stay alert because of the rocky sea bottom and the occasional powerful waves.

You can find a beach bar with food grabs, a seawater therapy center, and dozens of mesmerizing viewpoints within just a few meters distance of the beach itself.

Game of Thrones film set

Yes, you got that one right – the place has a lot to do with HBO’s mega-production. The pearl of Zumaia repeatedly appears in season seven of the show as the landing beach of Dragonstone.

This is where Daenerys Targaryen returns to Westeros for the first time after passing the Narrow Sea with her men. This is where Theon Greyjoy and Jon Snow meet again after a long separation. This is where Theon battles his crew and pushes them to rescue Yara.

Of course, this is where millions of fans had visited ever since to feel the vibe and recreate the thrill of the fantasy epics.
