"Surfing in the Basque Country" - that's a phrase you often hear in Zarautz! It not only stands for surfing, but for the all-round experience with tapas, sangria, fiesta, siesta and Basque culture. Zarautz is not one of the most popular travel destinations in recent years for nothing.

Surfcamp Zarautz offers the best of both worlds: a relaxed camp in green surroundings just a 5-minute walk from the sea.

  • Top surfing conditions in the Spanish Basque Country
  • Accommodation in large deluxe sheddies, standard sheddies or tents
  • Well-established camp team with many years of experience
  • Surf courses for beginners and advanced
  • With bar, restaurant and shop
  • Beach games, skate & longboards for free rental

The center of Zarautz is also not far away, where you will find everything you need for a relaxing holiday: from numerous shops to tapas bars, cafés, restaurants and a lively nightlife. The surf in Zarautz Bay is very suitable for both beginners and advanced surfers. Due to its location in the bay, you don't have to worry about currents and the waves roll in super!

The surf camp has its own bar, a kitchen and dining tent, chill-out areas, hammocks and a mini ramp. Half board is always included in the price. In the morning there is a rich breakfast buffet and in the evening a balanced dinner. The grill is also fired up once a week.

You can choose between two beginner surf courses:

  • Basic package: 3 surf lessons (1.5 hours each), material, theory
  • Medium package: 5 surf lessons (1.5 hours each), material, theory

Surfing is fun - but it's a lot more fun when you know what you're doing! That's why the surfing team at Surfcamp Zarautz offers top lessons with certified and experienced surfing instructors. The surf instructor crew has undergone intensive training and you can be sure that you are learning from responsible surfers.

The surf instructors not only teach you practically, but also give you theoretical insights into how waves are formed, the sea, the beach and the equipment. A surf session lasts 1.5 hours. You can also surf the material for free at any time.

Lessons take place in small groups of up to 8 people. Only soft tops (surfboards with a soft foam surface) are used. All surf instructors are beach lifeguards and have an ISA Surf Instructor 1 diploma. The ISA certification is recognized worldwide, so you can be sure that security is a top priority here.

The groups are divided by level: beginner or advanced. The beginner course is for those who have never surfed before. The intermediate surf course is suitable if you have already gained some experience, such as a week-long surf camp with lessons.

Surf spots for all levels!

Zarautz is a wonderful place for surfing. The bay surrounded by the hilly landscape offers a wonderful view while surfing. The waves are usually not very big and therefore ideal for learning to surf and longboarding. You have 2 different spots at your disposal - one right in front of the campsite: this spot is the closest and perfect to start surfing. There is also a little further, behind the swimming area, a spot that is also good for surfing: the locals often surf here and the waves are a bit bigger than at the campsite.

Playa Gris
About five minutes by car from Zarautz is the world-famous resort of Playa Gris. This spot has become known as a real big wave spot. Big waves come in here in winter. In summer, non-big wave surfers can also have fun here. The spot gets more swell than Zarautz and therefore the waves are a bit bigger on average. By the way, from Playa Gris you can also see the famous Big Wave Pointbreak Roka-Puta.

San Sebastion (Zurriola)
Fifteen minutes from Zarautz is the tapas capital of the Basque Country: San Sebastián. Apart from good food, drinks and shopping, you can also surf very well here! Last but not least, Zurriola beach has become a well known place in Spain because of its good waves. There is also a bit more swell here, so you have a chance of catching slightly larger waves than in Zarautz. But beginners can also go surfing here.

During your holiday in Zarautz you have the opportunity to take two city trips with you. The first goes to San Sebastián, the second to Bilbao. So you can go on vacation while on vacation.

The tapas capital of Spain is a must! San Sebastián is known for delicious food and drink, but also for the cozy Spanish atmosphere. Explore the old and new parts of the city together with the crew and be enchanted by their beauty.

In the old part you can eat tapas and pintxos, while in the new part you can shop to your heart's content. The best place to watch the sunset is from the cliff overlooking picturesque San Sebastián Bay. The day ends with a social party.

Yoga & surfing - the perfect combination

If you want to surf, you can get ahead with yoga. Yoga helps enormously to achieve good balance, build strength and loosen muscles after a hard surfing session. In addition, it is also very relaxing.

A yoga session is already included in your package price. If you get a taste for it, you can book more lessons with the yoga teachers at the surf camp.

During the early morning session you can enjoy the beautiful sunrise. The second session is then more focused on relaxing the muscles - ideal for getting back on the board the next day relaxed. There is also a sunset yoga session. Here the focus is not only on stretching and balance, but also on relaxation and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

Additional yoga session: 13 € (bookable on site)
