Zarautz Beachside Surf Glamping - San Sebastian, Basque Country. Spain
Zarautz Beach Glamping Surf Camp is every surfer’s paradise, located just 20 minutes outside of beautiful San Sebastian in Spain’s magnificent Basque country. The landscape is everything you’ve ever wished for with vast mountains and beautiful beaches to great bars for some awesome party nights out!
Our accommodation includes a gorgeous clifftop campsite overlooking the beautiful beach of Zarautz. If you like camping, but enjoy the more luxurious things in life, you’ll love our glamping options, you’ve got the best of both worlds, camping in comfort.
Our campsite feels like home (except way more fun) with hot showers, a restaurant, and a chill-out area for hanging out with all the new friends you’re going to make. No need to worry about making your own breakfast. Our in-house chef is waiting to whip up a breakfast feast (and delicious dinner!!) for you.
The combination of the intriguing Basque culture, mountains, and beaches along with more bars per square meter than anywhere else makes our camp like no other. Our clifftop campsite provides campers with gorgeous coastline views that will make you never want to leave. It’s less of a camping experience and more of a party till you simply can’t anymore while spending all of your days surfing your heart out. Our campsite makes it easy for you to make friends and the best part is that everyone is a young at heart, open-minded traveler just like you!!
Not trying to brag but we probably have the best group of staff throughout all of Europe. Our staff consists of a mischievous bunch of hoodlums, young at heart just like our campers who like to have fun as much as they do. They are fun, friendly and knowledgeable and can’t wait to meet you!
We have tons of free activities at our beach camp including 2-hour long surf lessons for everyone from first-timers to the pros. We have practically unlimited add-on activities to choose from including, horse riding, yoga, paragliding, helicopter rides and of course unforgettable party nights at the famous pintxo bars!

A Day in the Life at the Zarautz Beachside Camp
This is a guide itinerary, but not like a school camp itinerary – quite the contrary. This will give you an idea of what a day might look like for you at our Zarautz Beachside Camp. There’s always something for you to do, but it’s your holiday so feel free to lay on the beach, have a beer or go on an adventure with your new bunch of mates.
Wake up to a home cooked breakfast at camp and exchange stories from last night’s antics, read the surf report and get excited to head out surfing. Grab your board and either scout out the best banks on the beach or head into your lesson with one of our surf instructors.
When you’re all surfed out, we’ll kick it at the beach, or back up at camp with an icy sangria in hand. If you’re feeling bendy, join a yoga class on the beach, or come out on a hike, head into town and explore, join in on a Spanish Class, head back down to the beach for another surf or just kick back and relax!
If you’re the sensible type you can get in a good night’s sleep and be up bright and early for sunrise yoga and breathtaking views out over the beach. If some more drinks, music and exploring sound more like you, then either join us on a pintxos tour in Zarautz or San Sebastian, a trip to a traditional Basque cider house or head out to one of the many festivals that are on throughout the season.
