How about going to the beach at La Arena, with a stop along the way at the little port of Zierbena? In spite of its proximity to the Port of Bilbao, Zierbena maintains its traditional charm, with a mix of fishing boats and pleasure craft.
Just 7 minutes’ drive away is La Arena beach, between Zierbena and Muzkiz, one of the region’s main natural areas.
At almost 1 km in length, it is the perfect beach for surfing and other water sports, or for just walking along the shore.
Its wild waters make it one of the finest surfing beaches anywhere on the southern Bay of Biscay coast.
It has multiple amenities, green areas and leisure facilities, making it an ideal spot for a pleasant day out all year round.
Across the bridge over the mouth of the River Barbadún at the western end of the beach lies the district of Pobeña. From this picturesque spot, visitors can access Itsaslur.
This is a green trail built on what was once a rail track serving the local mines. It runs between the districts of Pobeña and Cobarón in Muzkiz.
The wonderful views, the strong swell that breaks on its high cliffs and the vestiges that remain of the area’s industrial past make this a magical spot.
