A valuable treasure

The flysch located between Zumaia and Deba is one of the most valuable treasures of all the Basque Coast, and it is considered as one of the most spectacular and famous in the world. The 6th of May of 2010, the International Commission of Stratigraphy recognized it as “a world referent to the history of Earth”. They are authentic sheets of sedimentary rocks that form an open book about 60 millions of years of geological history of earth. Many geologists all over the world gather annually in this place searching for data for their studies. The panoramic is very impressive, the flysch can be appreciated both in the vertical walls like in the ground. It is a fun place to go with children.

I would recommend that you put some rubber boots in your backpack in case you go down to the cove of Sakoneta. When the tide goes down there are infinite puddles where crabs, octopuses, starfish and periwinkles hide. Next to this cove there is a small place to eat, very basic. The tourist office organizes guided tours by foot or boat. Here is the link for activities:

A natural treasure

Zumaia is a beautiful town of the coast of Gipuzkoana. One of the most beautiful coasts to visit in this region is Flysch, an impressive cliff between Zumaia and Deba. It is a beautiful place to see from a distance and enjoy in the actual place, since you can go up to the peak of the cliff to enjoy the incredible views. The first picture is taken from the chapel of San Telmo, at the beginning of the Flysch. The second is taken from the peak of the cliff and shows the views that this natural treasure offers. The third one shows the views of the town of Zumaia, from the cliff. It is a beautiful place and obliged visit if you pass Gipuzkoa: an ideal place to relax while enjoying the sea.
