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.

We decided to give this beach a visit and it was great, Quiet and clean with a few bars down the end and plenty of showers too.

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.

It is a nice small and clean beach, over crowded in summer, no motorboats allowed. The area offers some parking and pretty walk by the river delta.

A short hop from Bilbao city reachable by metro, it's worth a visit with a different perspective from the city scape.
