Day Trip to Mundaka

Mundaka, a quaint little town in the outskirts of Bilbao, is just 30 minutes drive South from San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. This lesser known gem is a surfer's paradise. The Port is the picturesque part of this small wonder where you can see people sunbathing by the sea, children somersaulting in the water, and some just having fun on their private jet boats or yachts. Surrounded by colorful and pastel Basque style houses, it is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a sunny day!

We discovered this gem through our Casa Rural owner. After the tough and steep trek from Dragonstone, we were still gasping for air. The result of having just general aversion, or you could say laziness, to go to gym or do any kind of workout. After almost 2 hours of lazying around at the Galerna Beer Garden, where we ended up taking an hour nap on the sloping gardens, we thought why not just go and have a look at Mundaka. We weren't expecting too much, as we thought we had seen the best, being the Dragonstone. The drive to the town was just breathtaking! Upon reaching the town, we walked around to discover the Port area which left us in an awe.
