    A beautiful beach, great for surfers. Area maintained very well too. Unfortunately no dogs allowed on the beach, but we walked along the promenade with them.

    Very lovely winery with magnificent views. Very tastefull wines. Good tour of the place and lovely people.
    A total new way of cultivating grapes. Not the usual rows of vine but vine intertwined to form one big roof over the soil. Very interesting.

    We were guided bij the daughter of the house. A very lovely beautiful and kind young woman. She told us everything about the vine the bodega and the history of it all. And answered all our questions.
    We were allowed to taste the wines and got explanations about how it was made and why it tasted like it did.

    They also make a vermout and a very very lovely Gin.

    We had some lovely food and wines to drink and afterward the daughter and the mother gave us al lot of tips of things to see and visit in de area and recommended some restaurants. We bought a lot wolf bottles to take home.

    All in all a perfect day for me, my boyfriend and our kids.

    This is a coastal walkway, between the ocean and the highway. It's nicely paved and pedestrians are protected from cars by stout concrete barriers. The path connects Zarautz with Getaria, its about 4km long. The coastal and mountain views are lovely and there are a few spots with stairways down to the water/beach/rocks depending upon the tide. There's one public toilet, much closer to the Zarautz side. There is frequent bus service between Zarautz and Getaria so if you only want to walk one way that's possible. While on this path you might see pilgrims heading towards Santiago de Compostela. You probably won't see bicyclists on the path, they are expected to use the highway.

    We went here on the way back from Ekainberri for a picnic and a walk.

    We visited the botanical garden and the mill / foundry. The latter was open from 1130-1300 and we just missed that as well as the bee guided visit art 1300 on sundays ... but it was still worth the visit.

    A wonderful area to walk in and have a picnic. We also saw many locals going for more extravagant picnics using the prebuild bbq’s.

    Well worth it.

    We went to mass which was in Basque. Understood about 3 words. Church beautiful without being over the top. Choir good
    (Basque male voice choirs usually are).

    I love finding small family run businesses that are off the beaten path, particularly when it comes to vineyards. These guys have gorgeous views, bright crisp lean and stunning Txakoli wines (I bought 2 of each to take back to my hotel) and as this is a small famliy run operation you are supporting a local business that deserves it-

    Definitely recommend contacting Onditz (one of the sisters) to make an appointment as this is a small operation and there aren't staff hanging out waiting to help people. But it's so worth it! Enjoy the wines overlooking some lovely vineyards (through which a piece of the Basque Camino de Santiago runs so you may see hikers) and take a few bottles back with you for dinner or picnics. Txakoli wines are made to drink now, drink with tapas and seafood and they are never expensive

    Our hotel host suggested we visit the museum whilst passing through Zarautz. We didn't know what to expect, and were delighted with the museum. We ended up spending over two hours enjoying the exhibits. It is well organized, on four floors, with some excellent artifacts and displays.
    Additionally, the man running the museum was very informative and friendly.

    For people interested in photography, I'd highly recommend it!

    We had the pleasure of visiting this unique winery in the summer of 2021. John made it very easy to schedule and his passion and knowledge of the region and this special wine made it a very fun and unique tasting experience. This is a gorgeous place and worth the visit. You won’t find this type of wine anywhere else in the world so it is worth a stop!

    Zarautz is a popular town. And rightly so. It has a charming old town with lots of Tapas Bars. You can get some great meals here. But also a pretty, wide and long beach. Heaven for beach-lovers. If you're not one of them but still enjoy looking at the ocean and the beach, then walking along this Paseo is a great thing to do.
    The promenade follows most of the beach. It's big, it's wide. Enough space for everybody. Dogs on the promande are allowed - as opposed to the beach.
    Along the promenade you'll find countless cafés and restaurants. Most offering similar menus. For true spanish culinary experiences I'd recommend the old town though. But to have a drink and watch the world go by it's fine.

    Some shops, ice cream shops, beach gear rentals and public toilets can be found as well.

    It's just a nice and relaxing thing to do, strolling up and down the Paseo. To the west you could actually follow the road on a footpath along the ocean until Getaria. Surely something we'll do when back one day.
