Beaches and coves

Hondarribia beach

Hondarribia beach is 800 metres long and the surrounding area has been recently redeveloped. It is now the ideal place for a relaxing dip before enjoying a spacious sandy beach. There are toilets, changing rooms, showers, children’s play area, kiosk, bar, lifeguards, a car park and access for people with reduced mobility and the disabled.

Los Frailes beach

Los Frailes beach is right at the foot of Mount Jaizkibel and is 63 metres long and 30 metres wide. Access is via a path down from the road between the port and the lighthouse. Its isolated location amongst vegetation and rocks means it never gets busy. Surrounded by cliffs, it does not receive much sunlight but it is an ideal spot for scuba diving since the transparent waters make the seabed clearly visible. 

Kapelaundi Beach

Small, isolated Kapelaundi Beach has few visitors but is popular amongst nudists. Large waves and strong winds are a constant at this small 2800 x 15-metre bay. 

Errota Sein

Located to the west of Cape Higer this rocky, pebbly beach is at the foot of Mount Jaizkibel. Access is difficult and on foot and there is no available parking nearby meaning this cove is frequently deserted. Strong waves and winds crash onto this 48 x 20 metre cove. Scuba divers are the main visitors. 


At the foot of Mount Jaizkibel, this tiny, pebbly beach is just 5 metres wide and 105 long. An ideal spot for diving, strong waves and winds often crash onto the beach. 


At the foot of Mount Jaizkibel, few people visit this tiny beach of just 38 x 5 metres. 

Eretzin Zabala

Eretzin Zabala beach is famous for its odd-shaped lumpy, sometimes round, and sometimes almost seal-like shaped rocks. The seawater is to blame for dragging these odd-shaped rocks to this 38 metre by 5-metre beach. Difficult access and strong winds mean few people visit it.
