The Zarautz surf camp combines all the comforts of home, a few special extras, and that fun surf camp atmosphere that’s synonymous with Puresurfcamps.

  • Only 500 meters to the beach, and the closest surf spot
  • Perfect Basque country landscapes, surf & food
  • Surf courses that are perfect for beginners to intermediates
  • The campground has its own bar, restaurant & shop
  • WiFi available
  • Beach games as well as Skate & Longboards to rent for free

Surfing Basque Country is something you’ll hear flying around the campground on an hourly basis, it doesn’t just relate to the epic waves, but also the culture that surrounds you. This includes the Tapas, the Fiestas, the Siestas, the culture, and of course the Sangria.

Zarautz is slowly but surely becoming one of the most popular surf destinations in Europe for all age brackets, and all levels of surfer. The bays layout means you don’t have to worry about currents and rips and provides amazing peaks for beginners in front of the camp, and more advanced surfers towards town. If you’re feeling confident you can also check out the next beach over, Playa Gris, which is a local favourite and world class big wave spot when the swell gets big. The green rolling hills that surround the camp and happy locals in town really add to the experience and make it a memory you won’t forget.

The camp also has plenty of spaces to unwind in the evenings, including an onsite bar where the team throw quiz nights, themed parties and karaoke evenings. There is also a large central dining area and plenty of hammocks.

The team also make use of their surroundings by sourcing fresh local produce to prepare the daily breakfast buffet, and daily dinner which you can add to your booking, meaning you don’t have to worry about meals for the duration of your stay.

Zarautz is in the middle of Basque Country, just west of the famous town of San Sebastián. Bilbao is also nearby which means you have plenty of options if you want to check out a town after your morning surf session. Zarautz offers plenty, one thing you have to try is the amazing Tapas Bars along the beachfront promenade and fun nightclubs. The beach is also immaculate and stretches from the camp to the other side of town.

Surf Camp Deluxe Zarautz sits 500 meters away from the water’s edge at the Talai Mendi Campground, and has WiFi, a private bar, Miniramp and a small supermarket for all the guests to make use of. The centre of town is also easy to access. All you have to do is take a short stroll, or borrow a skateboard or longboard and roll along the beachfront promenade. Once you get there you can check out the locally famous Pukas Surf Shop, or try one of Hippie Burgers, or go visit the local skatepark. If you are there in the evening you will also find great bars and nightclubs where you can party with locals and international travellers alike.

Sunset Hill
The rolling hills that shape the landscape around Zarautz offer anyone interested an amazing view over the bay. Not only do you get an amazing vista of the bay, but also the surrounding landscape. It’s also the perfect spot to watch a memorable sunset.

The Boulevard & Diving Boards
If you walk along the beachfront promenade and spend an afternoon checking out the local lifestyle, you’ll probably be quite warm. The locals thought about this and put up some diving boards at the other side of town where you can dive into the crystal-clear water that laps at the towns edge.

Culinary Highlights
Basque Country cuisine is internationally famous for good reason. While on your surf trip make sure you make it to an authentic Tapas Bar at least once to try the local cuisine, and when paired with a great local wine, you are guaranteed delicious evening.

The surf coaches will be out in the water giving you pointers every step of the way, giving you guidance for everything including which waves to paddle for, how to optimise your take off, and how to start working on turns.

    Zarautz is a picture-perfect spot to surf, when you paddle into waves you see the green rolling hills of towards the distance. Zarautz is definitely not a big wave spot, but a fun place to learn, and for those of you that are a little more confident will catch a few gems out the back.

    There are two main breaks at Zarautz, you have the popular beginners spot directly in front of the camping grounds, then you have a slightly bigger spot past the swimming area towards the town, more for intermediate surfers.

    Playa Gris
    5 minutes’ drive away from the camp you have Playa Gris. This, unlike Zarautz, is really a big wave spot. In winter you’ll find huge, world-class waves exploding of the coast and shaking the ground under your feet. There is a famous point break at the edge of the bay called Roka-Puta that has snapped more than its share of surfboards.

    Things mellow out a bit in summer, and even non big wave surfers can catch some fun waves. This spot is still a bit more of a wave magnet so it will always be a bit bigger than Zarautz.

    San Sebastián (Zurriola)
    15 Minutes away from the camp you have the Tapas capital of the world, of San Sebastián. Here you can not only eat, shop and party, but also catch some epic waves. The beach break in town, called Zurriola, has become famous for its punchy A-Frame peaks and the waves that roll up the river mouth when it gets big.
