With several exquisite beach properties to consider, the Basque Country’s beach hotels vary from minimalistic to glitzy. Stay in Guipúzcoa, where the contrast between the green hills and the blue sea is breathtaking. Seeking out a more urban environment? Bilbao, with its many museums, cultural activities, and mini-metropolitan feel could be just the ticket for a holiday with some sense of the city; not forgetting that the beach is right around the corner. No vacation would be complete in the Basque Country without paying a visit to their beach hotels.
