About Sopelana

Very consistent beachbreak with several peaks. Good semi-permanent high-tide peak at western end of beach. Works on small to medium swells.

One of the most crowded spots in Spain. Highly competitive. Access from either end of the beach, but parking is restricted year-round and metered in summer. Every facility available including surf school. Surf shops and camping nearby. Estuarine and stormwater pollution, particularly after heavy rains.
