Getxo 2006 Satellite




Getxo is on the coast of the Basque province of Biscay, just a few minutes from Bilbao and the international airport there. Getxo is linked to Bilbao by a modern, underground railway.

Getxo benefits from 10km of coastline comprising of beaches and cliffs. The region also has a fine, open landscape.

Getxo's close association with the sea presents a wide selection of water sports and sailing facilities. Getxo has the finest marina in the Basque region with restaurants, waterside cafes, a cinema and many shops. The beaches are excellent quality and two of them have been awarded the European Blue Flag. The beaches have all the facilities you would expect from a modern resort.

By far Getxo's pride and joy are its open spaces and unique countryside. Beautiful green, rolling landscape with natural waterways and thick forests with peaceful walkways. A place for true tranquility. This also lends itself to outdoor pursuits such as biking, horse riding, mountaineering and caving.
