Zarautz Beachside Surf Camp 2017

Zarautz, Spain | 1st - 14th July

Zarautz Beachside Surf Camp 2017 is every surfers paradise

Your meals are prepared, your beers cold, your tents are made up for your arrival and your party nights are pre-organised. Too easy mate! Zarautz Beachside Surf Camp 2017 is waiting. As are all the new friends you’ll meet here! Come hang and make friends with our sick crew from all over the world, sharing travel tales over a beer or seventeen. Everyone’s welcome from beginners to the most accomplished surf dudes and dudettes. For beginners or those looking to improve, our surf instructors are fun and friendly and surf lessons are included.

The Zarautz Beachside Surf Camp 2017 is our little slice of paradise just outside of San Sebastian. It’s a combination of the landscape (mountains and beaches), the intriguing Basque culture, great food, crazy parties (more bars per square metre than anywhere else in the universe), insane waves, and beautiful weather in which to enjoy it all.

Where else in the world are your primary concerns trying not to get too much sun and the temperature of the beer? Where each and every day is a cycle of eating, surfing and drinking, and the nights spent partying and chatting and exploring? Where else can you spend your nights in the thumping nightclubs of San Sebastian, but wake up in nature surrounded by verdant hills, rustling leaves and twittering birds

Feeling brave?! Running Of The Bulls and Zarautz Beachside Surf Camp

Are you keen to Run with the Bulls at San Fermin, Pamplona? The Running of the Bulls festival officially starts on the 6th July 2017 and runs through until the 14th July with daily Bull runs and nightly street parties. We run shuttles every day at midday from our Zarautz Beachside Surf Camp 2017 to our Bull Bite Base Camp just outside Pamplona for just €15. So if you would like to join us there for a few days to party and run screaming from ten-tonne-testosterone-tanked toros, just email us at and we can add that to your booking.

Surf ‘n’ BBK and Zarautz Beachside Surf Camp

Why not combine the surf life with a music festival… Bilbao BBK Live is taking over the mountains with Rock & Pop from the 6th to 8th July 2017. An awesome Spanish festival that takes place on top of Kobetamendi Hill, you get to experience breathtaking views, good music and a brilliant atmosphere and perfect mix of rock and pop music.

Its perfectly timed and placed for you to head over from our camp and enjoy. Talk about convenient! Thanks universe… email us at for more info or to add to your booking.

  • A day at the Zarautz Beach 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 and cheese omelette.  Head to the beach to wash away the headaches (and mistakes) of the night before. A couple of hours of surfing, relaxing, soaking up the sun and playing beach games. Once we’ve worked 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 from 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.

    Day time activities:

    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


    We stay 20 minutes outside of San Sebastian at a beautiful clifftop campsite overlooking the surf beach of Zarautz.
    As far as surf goes, well we’re only a hop skip and a jump away from the finest surf beaches in Europe. And if National Geographic says we’re located in one of the World’s Top 20 Surf Towns, well who are we to dispute it!

    Campsite Address:

    Gran Camping Zarautz
    Calle Monte Talai Mendi,

  • Come fly to us…

    You want to fly to either Bilbao or Biarritz. Check out Ryanair, Easyjet and Vueling for cheap deals… there’s always plenty of cheap deals.

    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

    You can arrive to San Sebastian by bus from all over Europe and within Spain. Eurolines deal with international bookings and Vibasa within Spain.

    San Sebastian to Zarautz

    Local Bus: Fast buses run on the hour from San Sebastian, take 15 minutes and cost €3. Look out for the Lurraldebus DO50B, from bus stop “F. Garcia Lorca 2” near the Train Station of San Sebastian heading towards Loiu and than get off at station “Zarautz”.

    Local Train: Alternatively, the Euskotren is a good way to get there (see maps for directions). Trains run from San Sebastian (Amara) to Zarautz (San Pelaio) from the early morning until about 10pm. The trip costs €2 and takes 30 minutes.

  • 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?
    Beachwear, something to party in, something warm for the night times, a towel, sunscreen and your camera!

    What is the breakfast like?
    We like to mix it up: banana pancakes, ham, cheese and mushroom omelettes, poached eggs with bacon and even french toast. Veggies, no worries we cater for you too.

    How many people are there in a tent?
    Tents fit 2 people, but if you want a little extra room and privacy in case you meet the love of your life, you can pay a €20 surcharge for your own private tent.

    And what amenities are offered at the Beach Camp?
    We’ve got it all – hot showers, internet, a restaurant, a sidreria (ciderhouse), wine tasting within walking distance, a shop, flushing toilets, chillout area, great views, and the beach a 10 minute downhill walk.

    Two of us are vegans, do you cater for this?
    We cater for vegetarians, so we can always just remove the animal products 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 address of the camp?
    Gran Camping Zarautz, Calle Monte Talai Mendi, s/n, 20800 Zarautz, Guipúzcoa

    What is the night life like in San Seb?
    The nightlife in San Seb 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?
    We provide short boards, long boards, foam boards. Wetsuits and other gear can be rented on the beach.

Trip option: 4th of July Party

Because only celebrating Running of the Bulls is not good enough, we added a party before the party. The celebration of all things Yank, the creation and declaration of a nation known as arguably, possibly, maybe, the greatest nation on earth. And another excuse for everybody to lather themselves in a night of festive debauchery.

Stoke Travel is throwing our very own 4th OF JULY PARTY, right along Zurriola beach of San Sebastian, with private Party Bus transport to and from our Zarautz Beach Campsite. A classic Texan style BBQ dinner will be available to gorge down on, and a whole hour of free booze!


  • Party Bus Transport return to San Sebastian
  • BBQ Meal
  • FREE Booze from 9-10pm
  • International bAnGeRs till the wee hours
