A dramatic island off the Basque Coast Aug 12, 2008
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is a small rocky island just off the Basque coast, just east of Bakio. It is connected to the mainland by a manmade walkway.
On top of the island is a tiny hermitage, which dates back to the 10th century. You can climb up to it via a winding pathway of about 230 steps. The views of the windswept, rocky Basque coast are very stunning and dramatic.
It is accessable by road from the B3101 from Bermeo to Bakio, you can park on the access road and then walk down to the island.
