Bayonne road trip blacksheep

San Sebastian here you are in Spain, but beware! Here we do not say Donostia San Sebastian but it does not say Tapas, Pintxos but … And yes, even if it is Spain, it is primarily the Basque Country! Do not miss it: a sunset session (scéance surf at sunset, many close to the beach schools) from the Bay of La Concha, an orgy of tapas at Casa Estelana in the heart of the old town, and finally get on the Monte Igueldo, that examines the city from its 312 m, accessible by funicular.

Then, if you are led by the Spirit of Surfing, do not miss Mundaka, world famous spot where the wave (a perfect left) forms at the mouth of a river at the foot of the village chapel.

A little further along the jagged coastline, you will come to a stage of the Way of Saint Jacques de Compostela: the Hermitage of Santa Catalina is a beautiful church resting on a rock that recalls the flying world of Dragon Ball Z …

Bilbao-Guggenheim road trip blacksheep

Then towards Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum, tapas bars, night supercharged, its old town, walks along the canal … To do so, the beaches of Sopelana few kilometers north of Bilbao, known for surfing . Just above the beaches, parking very kid vans offers a breathtaking panorama (with health in range!).

Do not miss Bilbao:

Music festival Bilbao BBK Live festival in early July
Visit the Guggenheim Museum, all year round!
Feria de Aste Nagusia end of August

Santander, its parks, its old town, its beaches, casino … Santander is a seaside town like we have a lot in France, but with Spanish sauce. The beach casino is very nice for lounging but do not expect too there surfing … However, a little further along the coast you will find some great spots.

End your tour with a small hike (day or more …) in the massive Los Picos de Europa on the route to Gijon. Real reserve of fauna and flora that has several doors, Espinama which provides quick access on the heights thanks to the cable. Within a few kilometers, you go from the ocean in the heart of the Alps, just amazing …

Finally you can return by the same route and you return to the water in Biarritz or try something else by visiting the Collioure seabed on the other side of the Pyrenees through our partner “CBCM – Diving School of Collioure”.
