A day at the San Sebastian Surf Camp.
This is a guide itinerary with everything in the all inclusive package. But the beauty of staying at the beach camp is that you can do whatever you like, whenever you like, your way.
Wake up to a delicious cooked breakfast whether it be pancakes, bacon and eggs or a ham & cheese omelette. Head to the beach to wash away the headaches (and mistakes) of the night before. A couple of hours of surfing, (with instructors of course) relaxing, soaking up the sun and playing beach games.
Once we’ve built up enough of an appetite, it’s back to the camp to fill up on a tasty lunch prepared by our in-house chef and maybe, just maybe, brave that first icy cold beer of the day.
There are tonnes of different activities in the surrounding region to keep everyone occupied. We can head into San Sebastian to its famous pintxos bars, go on free walking tours, go horse riding, paragliding, on wine tasting tours or simply head to the beach for more surfing, or enjoy the sunshine on our terrace in all its glory.
Finish your afternoon activities with a cider on the hill, watching the sunset and then enjoy a big hearty dinner to line the stomach.
Surfing, volleyball, skateboarding, exploring the town, swimming, sun baking, fishing, cliff jumping, drinking beer, and much more.
Night time activities:
Party nights in San Sebastian, movie nights, dinners in our favourite restaurants in the area and visiting the many festivals that dot the region in summer.
Basque Country, Spain
San Sebastian is the jewel on this coastline, the coolest of Spanish seaside resorts (the Queen built her summer palace here). Here the European, and indeed global, youth come to play, party and surf under the sun. This is a city with more Michelin stars than any other city in the world, bar Paris, and with a population of a mere 400,000 or so, wowee, they love to dine well. They say San Sebastian has more bars in its Old Town than any other city in Europe, and considering that every second shop is a bar, well, they just can’t be wrong.
How to get here?
If you fly to Bilbao:
You can get a bus directly from the airport to Zarautz, buses leave from the front of the airport at 7am, 11.30am, 3.30pm and 8.30pm
If you land outside of these times there is an hourly bus to San Sebastian city centre and from there you can hop on the local bus or train to Zarautz.
If you fly into Biarritz:
To get to San Sebastian from Biarritz International Airport take a French SNCF train to Hendaye, change to the nearby Euskotren station (located just outside the SNCF station) and take a Euskotren to San Sebastian. Each train ride is between 30-40 minutes, with the total train trip costing less than €10. A coach service also exists between Biarritz airport and the Hendaye train station, via Saint-Jean-De- Luz (change buses there). The coach ride is less than one hour and costs about €4.
Come on ride the choo choo train
You can catch the Spanish national railway from most cities to San Sebastian. Check Renfe for details.
Buses are for legends
We’ll do pickups from San Sebastian centre during the day at various times. You will receive an info sheet with pickup times and contact numbers.
Yo surfer dudes, chuck your thoughts and questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll put up a helpful answer here…
What should we bring?
Warm clothes to sleep in, sunscreen, sunnies, condoms (better safe than sorry!), a torch, a pillow, beachwear, something to party in, a towel.
What is the breakfast like?
We like to mix it up: banana pancakes, ham, cheese & mushroom omelettes, poached eggs with bacon and occasionally french toast. Veggo’s, no worries we cater for you too.
Two of us are vegans, do you cater for this?
We cater for vegetarians, so we can always just remove the animal-product bits of that and stuff you to the brim with fruits and veggies and starches…..whatever we do, we’ll make a plan for you.
What is the night life like in San Sebastian?
The nightlife in San Sebastian is a lot of fun and deceptive. You go out for a few pintxos and a couple of bottles of cider and come back at 5am with little memory of the blur of a night you’ve just had in the many little bars and clubs of the town, but damned sure that you had the best time of your life.
Is all of the surfing equipment available to rent from the surf camp?
We provide short boards, long boards, foam boards and rashies for our guests. Wetsuits and other gear can be rented on the beach.
