Santiago beach (Zumaia)

At the point at which the River Urola empties its waters, so rich in history and with echoes of old ironworks, into the sea, lies Arenal de Santiago, a wide sandy area which once served as a much welcomed resting place on the old coastal pilgrim trail to Santiago de Compostela. The area is now a large sandy beach with calm waters ideal for bathing. As the sand encroaches on the sea, so the dunes which form a special ecosystem supporting over 50 different plant species also grow.
