Description

Barinatxe, also known as La Salvaje, is located between the municipalities of Getxo and Sopelana, and is close to Arrietara beach.

It’s an exposed spot where the surfing is usually good the whole year round. It features three peaks: the Triangular, which has a rocky seafloor and is a good size at all tide heights producing a potent, long, right-hander; to the west, La Batidora, with left-handers; and, in the center, La Corriente, a quite powerful left.

It usually gets quite crowded when the surfing is good. Respect and learn from the locals.
