Surfing Etxea
Reviews (2)
4.5 out of 5

Placed next to the best surf spot in the city, it's without doubt the best hostel for those looking to make the most of the great waves San Sebastián has to offer.

It’s also very close to the old part of town and the city centre, where all the famous Basque "pintxo" bars and restaurants are, and there are plenty or great shops and bars all around.

Whether you're here to surf or not, there is everything you need to have an brilliant stay. We have nice bathrooms, a space where you can eat a great breakfast before starting your day or having a cup of coffee, and wide rooms with confortable beds so that you can enjoy a good night's sleep.

Sit outside on our amazing terrace, lay on the hammocks, enjoy unforgettable moments and make friends that will last for a lifetime.

Location

Our Surf Hostel is located in the heart of the city and right in front of “La Zurriola” beach, completely equipped with all you need to chill out with the best vibes, enjoy the ocean and explore the city.

Deluxe!! No matter what your surf level is, we will provide you with a whole range of surfboards in accordance with your needs.

San Sebastian is home to one of the most consistent beach breaks in Spain...La Zurriola. Located on the east side of this beautiful city, La Zurriola runs for 800 metres. San Sebastian surf lessons usually take place here. It's a perfect beginners spot and a great place to relax and chill out after a surf. The beach has great facilities including showers, volley ball, restaurants and cafés. It is surrounded by the stunning Monte Ijeldo and Monte Urgull mountains. The beach can pick up a lot of swell and is great for the more advanced also.

The town's other beach La Concha lies on the West side of the city. It's a sun bathing beach but next to it is Onderatta beach, there is a nice mellow beachbreak here.

East and west of the city you will find beach after beach to explore and surf - the water stays warm until the end of September thanks to the weather that the Bay of Biscay receives. San Sebastian is only a 30 minute drive from Biarritz, a direct bus will take you there in just over an hour - another great destination to surf and explore.

Spain's main surf town, Zarautz, is only 20kms West of San Sebastian, an easy train ride away...another great place with a 2.5km surf beach.

The Basque area offers a huge array of surf breaks waiting to be explored.
