Zarautz guards its treasures in its beach…even though the seafront is not what it used to, because the mansions and ancient houses have slowly given way to more modern buildings.
The beach is marvelous…and if you like surfing this is a great place. In fact, this place holds international championships every year.
I experienced very happy moments with my family in this beach when I was small and we went to visit the “uncles and cousins of Zarautz”…we were crazy with happiness to go there and I can still remember the smell of the sea when we walked towards the sea, crossing the railway tracks. If it was holiday I remember having “churros” with sugar when the sun was coming down.
