The Irutzun Beach is just 300 meters from Zumaia. Its waves usually range from a meter to a meter and a half, and surfers can be spotted there throughout the year. The site offers views of the famous flysch rock formations, and at the top is the Hermitage of San Telmo. This is a beach ensconced in an idyllic, gorgeous setting.
Following the coast, you reach Zumaia's Playa Gris (Grey Beach), which is the most popular amongst skilled surfers. Also known as Planeitxa, it boasts waves more than 6 meters high, but it is only recommended for expert surfers, as it can be dangerous, due to the nearby rocks. Depending on the tide and other circumstances, it can be dangerous to surf. Remember: for experts only.
