Gorliz beach is one of the safest and most beautiful of the Basque coast.It is protected by the Bay of Gorliz, with the form of a seashell. It is an exceptional place to rest while enjoying the landscape, and also for practicing all types of aquatic sports, like body boarding, Scuba diving and swimming.
Gorliz's hospital is located next to the beach and between the centre and the beach is located the pinewood. It is ideal for spending an enjoyable day barbecueing.

Next to the dunes a path ascends along the coast via several sets of stairs, that goes to the Gorliz's lighthouse.
