Description

Orruaga Beach is located in the municipality of Getaria, this small, rocky bay is an estuary of the River Urola.

The best surfing seasons are autumn and winter. Here, there are 3 reefs with quite long, good-sized rights: one, which is short and up to 6 feet high, with a reef at the bottom and usually appears at mid-high tide; a right of up to 16 feet, which is surfed at quite high tide; and a left which we recommend when the tide rises.

Keep an eye out for the sharp cliffs and stones.

Located close to Planeria / Playa Gris, a beach famous for its giant wave.
