Getaria Tours

Getaria
Surrounded by two beaches on either side, it seems impossible not to slow down and enjoy the peaceful pace of this coastal Basque town. Take in the ocean views from the waterfront and from up the hills, taste freshly caught fish from the bay, or stroll through the well-preserved old town. The area is also known for its local white wine txakoli and the vineyards that produce it, which are easy to explore nearby.

Of course it would be remiss not to mention the beach town’s most famous resident — fashion icon Cristóbal Balenciaga, and there is a museum here devoted to his work. There is also a small peninsula close to the fishing port that ends at San Antón Mountain, and it is affectionately called Ratón de Getaria (“mouse of Getaria”) for its unique shape. You can climb to the top for panoramic views of the town and the coastline.

Practical Info
