CASINO DE MUNDAKA
Mundaka is a Basque Country town and municipality located in the province of Biscay.
On the coast, Mundaka, is a working port and is internationally renowned for its surfing scene.
The port is in the centre point of the town, from there, the old part of the town grew.
All the houses are medieval with fishermen's houses, always looking out to sea.
The port has many small boats.
Mundaka is well renowned world wide for its quality of surf. Huge swells roll in from the Bay of Biscay and slam into the rocky coastline of the Basque Countryside. The estuary at Mundaka has created a perfect sandbar which forms hollow waves that can be watched from the town's harbour wall.
Mundaka was formerly one of the sites of the World Championship, Tour of Surfing. Some great surfers have marked their legacy on Mundaka such as Taj Burrow, Bobby Martinez, Kelly Slater, Mark Occilupo and Joel Parkinson.
