Bakio, waves and vineyards

Bakio A small town in Urdaibai and one of the surfing references in the Bay of Biscay.



July 2022


Green hills and blue waves come together in Bakio. A small town that links the regions of Uribe Butrón and Urdaibai. Until not very long ago, Bakio prospered thanks to fishing, agriculture, water mills and the occasional small shipyard on the riverbanks. This explains its curious architectural heritage with modest Gothic buildings and Baroque mansions.

Its microclimate, determined by the orientation of its beach and the hills that surround it, has always favoured crops, particularly vines, which has established the prestige of Bakio txakoli in Bizkaia to such an extent that the‘Museo del Txakoli – Txakolingunea’opens its doors in this town.

This microclimate has turned the surroundings of the port into an attraction for people in search of sun and sea. The good quality of its waves contributed since the 70s to turn its break into one of the surfing references in the Bay of Biscay.

But that’s not all: there’s good food, the kindness of the locals and the fascinating landscapes that are easily accessible by different footpaths. In particular, the route between Bakio and Bermeo, on foot, by bicycle or motorbike, is particularly unique for many reasons, one of them being the passage through San Juan de Gaztelugatxe.
