Surfing in San Sebastián is a passion, a lifestyle

Surfing is one of the biggest attractions in Donostia/San Sebastián and the city has a special passion for the sport paired with a range of infrastructures to ensure surfers enjoy their visit.

Thousands of surfers from around the world come to San Sebastian's Zurriola Beach for the sole purpose of riding its waves. The best waves are in autumn, which is why dozens of championships at a local, national and international level are held mainly in spring and autumn. During those months, it is easy to confuse the Zurriola Beach and its surroundings with any surfer city in Australia or California.

San Sebastián is also located in the middle of the three most popular beaches in the Basque Country: Mundaka, Zarautz and Biarritz.
