Laida beach

Laida Beach

Basque Coast


Laida Beach is located in the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve and belongs to Bizkaia's town of Ibarrangelu.

The almost-one-kilometre-long beach of fine golden sand is the longest beach in the Mundaka Estuary. It offers the chance to practice varied activities such as canoeing or sailing, occupying surfing the most remarkable place. It has quality waves which are long and have little power, ideal for longboard.

Special attention has to be paid to the currents. This is the area where Mundaka's surf schools operate. Another distinctive feature of this Biscay's beach is its shallow waters that are ideal for children. Besides, there is a beautiful dune in the middle of the beach from which we can admire the lovely scenery of Izaro Island.
