Number of moorings on pier: 516 The town of Zumaia belongs to the historic region of Gipuzkoa and is one of the most important towns on the Basque coast. Its port is located inside a natural bay formed by the mouth of the river Urola. Over the past few years important work has been carried out on improving access, in order to guarantee a depth at low tide of 5 m at the mouth and 3.5 m along the navigation channel. The modern sports harbour of Zumaia is in this bay, which is sheltered from the NW winds that prevail in this region, with a capacity for 500 boats of up to 15 m in length. Web www.marinaurola.com
