About Zurriola

A consistent, crescent shaped sandy bay in the heart of San Sebastian, Zurriola is a super popular spot, working through the tides. Once home to reeling Mundaka like waves before the breakwater was built, it can still produce good quality peaks along the beach. Works best in small to medium swells, tends to close out in bigger conditions. There's a strong local crew, and water quality can be poor. Beach facilities include showers, drinking water and toilets.
