Incredibly beautiful beach for all nature lovers, this landscape is really beautiful including large sand shores and rocky cliffs, Quite easy to access with the metro line (Plentzia). Do not hesitate to discover this landscape!

A relatively quick subway ride costing £1.90 each person each way will get you from central Bilboa (railroad station) to the beach and end of the L1 line. A relatively short walk across a pedestrian bridge and through town takes you to a large beach....More

I had a visit here. I took the underground to Plentzia (takes about 30 mins from central Bilbao) During the summer, this is a busy area with lots of people on the beach.

A quick metro journey brings you to this level resort. The crescent shaped beach, around which the town is built is a joy to walk, swim, etc. Good restaurants and cafes abound. Parking can be a problem in high summer.

Staying in Bilbao for a few days it was a pleasure to catch the super efficient Metro to Plentzia. Busy beaches and quiet old town. A very pleasant day out.
