The beautiful Bay of Biscay coastline makes for some great sailing, with southern France and northwest Spain within easy reach.
Bilbao Airport is often seen as a tourist destination in its own right, thanks to its stunning new terminal from Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, which opened in 2000.
Located north of Bilbao on the Bay of Biscay, Getxo is a small town that forms part of metropolitan Bilbao.
Getxo Marina has a total of 827 berths, of which five are available for yachts of 18 m (59 ft), the maximum length accommodated at the marina. The marina is divided into two areas: shops and recreation (restaurants, aquarium, coffee shops) and the technical area for repairs and maintenance. The local town of Getxo also has plenty of amenities, including a cinema, and the city of Bilbao is only 15 minutes drive away.
Located in a suburb of Getxo, Las Arenas, the Marina Club Maritimo del Abra is an historic yachting club featuring a host of amenities and services.
The marina has 300 berths with space for yachts up to 25 meters (82 feet). All the berths are equipped with water and electricity, and the club has a restaurant, disco, bar and library. For sports fans there are plenty of facilities, including squash courts, swimming pools and a gym.
Located nine miles to the north of the city, Bilbao Airport is the largest facility in the Basque area.
Famous for its new terminal designed by Santiago Calatrava, ‘The Dove’ sits comfortably among the hills of Txoriherri Valley. Servisair can provide ground handling for private jets arriving in Bilbao. Offering ramp services, into-plane fuelling and de-icing among other services, crew can also relax in the comfortable lounge area. Servisair has operations in over 120 different locations worldwide and provides a swift, professional service.
