Ea is the short name of the small river that crosses this picturesque little town located just 50kms from Bilbao, on the coastal road that leads to the Gernika estuary from Lekeitio. Ea was founded on the XVI century by fishermen from the neighbouring hamlets, that sought a permanent port for their fishing boats. They found this little natural harbour and established there. The town consists mainly of a single street and a river crossing it from beginning to end, sided by fishermen houses and ending in a natural harbor and a small beach that disappears on high tide. There´s a little chapel and also two or three small bars, where you can enjoy a drink and something to eat while enjoying the unspoilt landscape.
Not far, and on the same road, the villages of Natxitua and Bedarona, with breathtaking views over the ocean, and excellent restaurants serving real homemade food. Off the beaten path, but a must on your visit to the Basque Country.
