Zumaia, Deba and Mutriku, the three municipalities that comprise the Geopark territory are located on the central coast of the Basque Country, in the westernmost area of Gipuzkoan coastline. The geopark boundaries are the municipality of Getaria to the east; Aizarnazabal, Zestoa, Azpeitia, Azkoitia and Mendaro to the south (all municipalities located in Gipuzkoa); and the municipality of Ondarroa, in the province of Bizkaia, to the west.

The area has excellent transport links and is close to the three Basque capitals. San Sebastián, for example, is only 30 minutes by car and Bilbao, 50 minutes (driving time calculated from Zumaia, the most populated town in the geopark).
