Hondarribia Surf Guide

Hondarribia in Pais Vasco is an exposed beach/Jetty break that only works when conditions are just right with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. The beach break offers mainly right hand waves. Best around low tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Watch out for crowds / pollution.
