Wellentime has two pensions which offer simple, clean rooms with en-suite washing facilities. The toilet is shared. These are both conveniently located in Gorliz /Plentzia.


Wellentime wants you to experience but not exploit. Nearly everything Wellentime uses is locally sourced and provided, meaning you can explore and enjoy without overwhelming the local culture. The northern Spanish coast is unique in that you can surf from undeveloped beaches of stunning natural beauty, yet you are also within easy reach of an enormous wealth of local culture in the form of fascinating cities, unique art and architecture and exciting cuisine. In order for you to experience this, Wellentime offers flexibility, so they can match your availability, and your pocket, allowing you to take advantage of off-peak travel and mid-week prices. Wellentime deals with people, not numbers, both in the service they offer you, and in their interaction with the local culture. Wellentimes instructors help you to develop new skills and the local knowledge helps you make the most of your non-surfing time in exploring the local area and beyond, getting the most out of the time you are at Wellentime.

Included excursions

Bilbao city tour is included in the price.


Wellentime base is in northern Spain, at a campsite in the village of Gorliz near Bilbao. The campsite and pension accommodation are located in the picturesque bay of Plenzia / Gorliz, two villages behind the bay. The accommodation is about 10 minutes walking distance from the beautiful beach, and the quaint harbor. Plentzia is connected to the Metro system which takes you directly to the center of Bilbao in 45 minutes, although bars, restaurants and supermarkets are available locally. There are a host of other activities for you to try including coastal hiking, biking, snorkeling, sea canoeing, swimming, skateboarding, inline skating and the local Basque game, pelota. There is a natural park overlooking the bay where barbequing facilities are available.
