Welcome to Getxo
This sprawling coastal district northwest of Bilbao has wide-ranging appeal, with picturesque beaches, elegant waterfront promenades, and quaint streets sprinkled with indie shops and seafood-loving restaurants. Keep in mind that Getxo is a municipality rather than a single destination and consists of five different districts, all accessible by Metro Bilbao from the city proper. Among the highlights are the pintxo bars of Areeta-Las Arenas, the marina and beaches near Neguri, and the old fishing village of Algorta. Keep heading north to reach even more pristine beaches and dramatic clifftop scenery – a wild beauty that's surprisingly close to Bilbao.
