Zarautz, Basque Country, Spain, is a coastal town in the north of the country. Around twenty-two thousand people permanently live in the town, which is well known for its excellent opportunities for water sports such as surfing. In summer, the number of inhabitants is a lot higher due to the high influx of international tourists. Most people come for the relaxed vibe, the waves, and some nice days on the beach.
