What to expect?

Sailing Trip to Izaro Island

The Tour departs from Bermeo – a beautiful fishing town – from where we’ll head East towards the neighbouring town of Mundaka before heading out towards the island of Izaro. Legend has it that a monk who lived on this island fell in love with a local girl from Bermeo. Each night she would light a candle showing him the way to her. A family member who didn’t agree with the relationship, lit up a candle for the monk to follow…only to dash him on the rocks! Following her loved one to his death the young woman threw herself off the cliffs into the sea. Whether this is true or not, it paints a romantic picture in this harsh, beautiful and rugged area. This is a beautiful sail along the rugged coastline of the Basque Country, where you will witness the intimidating beauty of its cliffs (and feel sorry for the poor monk!).

Once at the island, we’ll anchor for a tasting of local products including a glass of Txakoli wine. Weather and tide permitting, you will be able to enjoy some paddle boarding and swimming before heading back to Bermeo.
