The Beach

Zarautz Beach is the largest in Gipuzkoa and its 2,500 metres make it a multidisciplinary space, with different aspects and people. Families, surfers and nature lovers come together at the same time on this stretch of sand, divided into three zones: the western end, frequented by families and bathers; a central part reserved for surfers and the dunes at the eastern end, which are the habitat for numerous species of flora and fauna.

The promenade is the perfect backdrop for this stretch of sand, and it contains sculptures by various artists and a children’s playground. The promenade runs along the whole of the town and extends to the neighbouring town of Getaria along a spectacular esplanade which never turns its back on the sea.

he City Council is committed to promote through their actions sustainable development of society and to improve their environmental performance on the beach, being the main natural character of the town.

The City Council has established an environmental management system at the beach, to prevent pollution and improve environmental attitudes of users; specifically it has obtained the ISO 14001 and EMAS certificates.
