Highlights

  • Surf, party and eat: The North of Spain is well known for these three things: surfing, eating and partying until the sun comes up. At the surf camp in Zarautz that isn't any different so in case you are a fan of this, do not wait any longer and get your places booked
  • Nature's around the corner: The surf camp is overlooking the beautiful bay of Zarautz while still being surrounded by the beautiful green nature the North of Spain has to offer. You get the best of both worlds, the buzzing ocean and tranquility of the trees
  • Surfing for all: The North of Spain has a coast which is excellent for surfers that are just starting, surfers with little experience and intermediates too. So even if this would be your first time, this is the place to go to.

Mark van Dijk 4 / 5

Great location next to the beach, very organized, showers were ok and washing machine were good (4 euro). Price for 2 with a tent about 19.80. Major downside was the tiny spot

they assign to you as hiker. Literally right on top of 3 other tents with a slot of 3 by 4 meters next to the road. Other people get 4 times that space for nearly the same price
