Why You Should Go To Zarautz Beach Camp
The Surf House, with its real beds and stately construction in the traditional Basque style, would seem like the obvious choice for a San Sebastian surf holiday. But down the bottom of the hill from Aia, where the house is, is a smaller hill, and on top of that you’ll find our Zarautz Beach Camp, and it’s very damn lovely in its own right.
Here are the benefits of the camp:
- It’s nearer to the beach
From the surf house you have to rely on our shuttles to get you down to the surf and back up. At the camp you can use your two feet and heartbeat, so even though you’ll be walking down — and then back up — the hill you can surf, swim and sunbathe whenever you want and wherever you want along the Zarautz beach.
- The views are spectacular
From the Surf House the views take you across the rolling Basque hills and down to the Bay of Biscay, adding a foreground to your sunset vista. From the Surf Camp, however, we’re seeing the sunset from the front row, in all its glory, with only the unbearably gorgeous town of Getaria interrupting the view.
- The party is merely a walk away
If you want to find a party from the Surf Camp the town of Zarautz is a wander down the hill and a mean stumble back up once the festivities have wrapped. There you’ll find a bunch of small, fun bars, some with food, others with pumping top-40 dance music. At the Surf House you will spend most of your evenings in the house, drinking in our downstairs bar, and sometimes rolling on a bus into San Sebastian city for a wilder night on the tiles.
- You’ll be sleeping in tents
And while it is more intense than sleeping on a real bed in the surf house, staying in tents does add the illusion of privacy (there’s a nylon wall between you and your neighbours), plus you’re having an adventure in nature, so you can always brag to your friends about being the outdoorsy type.
- The Surf House fills up
But the Surf Camp has unlimited availability, meaning that if you’re a late booker, or you’re rolling with a gang of hundreds, there will always be a place for you up the hill in Zarautz.
The Zarautz Surf Camp is open on the hill alongside Zarautz beach from the 30th of June to the 22nd of July. The San Sebastian Surf House is open from the end of May until sometime in September. Both are awesome in their own special way, so whichever your preference make sure you make the pilgrimage the the Basque coast this summer.
