San Juan de Gaztelugatxe boat trip
Rock, water and wind. In San Juan de Gaztelugatxe nature has unveiled all her magic to captivate you with. The islet, crowned by a rustic chapel, exudes supernatural charm and is shrouded in legend. Come and experience it from a different vantage point the sea; only by doing so will you be able to fully appreciate this mystical enclave on the Basque Coast, which will become etched in your memory.
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is one of those special places which, as soon as you see it, you know will stay with you forever. Torn between the immensity of the Cantabrian Sea and the solemnity of the Basque Coast's cliffs, the Gaztelugatxe islet is imbued with a mystic atmosphere and magic which washes over everyone who comes to see it.
If you have already witnessed its incomparable beauty from dry land, just wait until you experience it from the sea. We suggest taking a boat trip in the fishing town of Bermeo and crossing the waters of this little slice of the Basque Coast. These waters, which in years gone by were navigated by privateers and pirates, were also the scene of some important naval battles in our history.
After we have departed cape Matxitxako, we are greeted with the sight of the island of Gaztelugatxe. Connected to the mainland by a bridge and more than 200 steps, it is crowned by a hermitage dedicated to San Juan, to whom the fishermen in the area are deeply devoted, and with whom various rites and legends have become associated. From our position on the boat, we'll be able to drink in the beauty of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, a privilege for the few
