2) The most popular beach in the vicinity of Bilbao is La Arena, northeast of the city

There are no beaches in Bilbao itself, but they are easily accessible by bus or metro (the journey will take 20-40 minutes). One of the most popular beaches is La Arena. Here you will find 1.2 km of wide sandy coastline, turning into a dense forest. It is quite safe for both adults and children to swim here.
