Plentzia Beach in Bilbao: Information, Webcam, Weather and Map

A few kilometers (30 km) north of Bilbao we find the Bay of Plentzia, composed of the beaches of Plenzia, Gorliz and Astondo, near the town from which it takes its name. A place where the strong waves of the cliffs of the Atlantic coast give a break to give way to a haven of calm. In this place we find the beach of Plentzia, an extension of white and clean sands. It is a relatively quiet place, due to the fact that the town is far away from the convulsive beaches of the capital of Biscay. An ideal place to enjoy alone or with the family.

As we said previously, one of the main reasons to visit the beaches of Bilbao can be the practice of water sports, such as surfing. Well, the beach of Plentzia is an ideal place to get started in the practice of this sport. In addition, this small paradise as we can see in the photo, with fine golden sand, turquoise blue waters and moderate waves is located just 25 km from the capital.

Bahia de Plentzia

The possibilities that are offered are many, because such a place contains both sea and mountain activities. Relax lying on the sand, dive into the waters of the bay, or simply take a walk along the steep walls of the coast, a route in which we are presented with fantastic scenes, petrified dunes, viewpoints overlooking the sea, such as the viewpoint of the lighthouse or the viewpoint from the hidden and high fortress past the winding path of the pine forests.

Astondo Punta Pletzia

If heights are not your thing, head inland and get lost in the Gorliz pine forest and discover period buildings such as the illustrious Gorliz Hospital. If that doesn’t convince you there is more, rent a canoe or take surfing lessons. If after so much activity you get an appetite, get lost in the town and taste the traditional Basque food. Without a doubt an opportunity to soak up the culture of the north.
