Stage six

26 kms from Gernika to Bakio, along the river, to the sea at Mundaka, which has a large area of sand and pools with birds and crabs. Then to Bermeo, another attractive fishing village where everone seemed to be in the main square- children played, old men sat in the sun, younger people drank beer.

Along the cliff road to Bakio, a beach town near Bilbao. The highlight was San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, a church on an islet just off the coast, reached by a stone stairway that links it to the mainland and climbs the rocks to the peak where the church is built.
