Armintza Beach

Basque Coast


A small fishing village in the municipality of Lemoiz which has a lot of charm and some very peculiar waves.

On days when there is a medium swell there is a right-hander that breaks near the cliffs and only at mid - tide. The only way to reach it is to paddle out from the small fishing port. When there is a big swell, there is a slightly complicated A-frame wave at the entrance to the channel of the port for which back-up at sea is needed.

On big days when there is a very heavy sea, a wave is formed at the beginning of the dock and breaks parallel to it. It is a soft right-hander ideal for children. The 250 metre-long beach of dark thick-grain frequently welcomes scuba diving and fishing lovers.
