The Bakio coastline extends over six kilometres in length, with beach, cliffs, coves and walks along the coast. The beach is open to the sea, where the waves make it an ideal place for the lovers of watersports, such as surfing.

The protected Biotope of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, between Cape Matxitxako and Bakio, is notable for its rocks, with the isthmus of Gaztelugatxe and the isle of Aketxe, along with numerous caves and submarine landscapes. Marine life includes algae growths which contribute significantly to fish life and other communities well established in the area.

The same occurs with the crevices at the base of the cliffs, which are home to an abundant barnacle population. The inaccessibility of the terrain favours the settlement of seabirds such as cormorants, Caspian gulls and petrels, along with the nesting of rock doves. And so it is with the vegetation, most notably of which are the species Armeria euskadiensis, acebuche and wild olive.

Located in the district of San Pelaio, and situated above the rocks of the area known as Askada, on the Bermeo road, Askada Observation Point, offers a magnificent panoramic view of Areaga beach in Bakio and its promenade. Additionally, Jata Observation Point, located on the right-hand side of the Bakio-Armintza road, offers the viewer an exceptional panoramic view of Bakio and Lemoiz.

Heading into the municipality, to the west we find Merendero de Larrondo, in Goitisoloalde district, at the foot of Mount Jata, and two kilometres from here, following the forest path, we find Merendero de Jata, which also has a recreation and leisure area with tables and BBQ pits along with drinking fountains.
