Aunque ya exista con anterioridad, Zumaia cobra entidad gracias a la carta-puebla otorgada por el rey castellano Alfonso XI. Concebida como una villa fortificada, tuvo sus ms y sus menos con Getaria, su vecina.

Su pequeo puerto pesquero, las fbricas de cemento y los astilleros siempre han sido sus principales actividades econmicas; pero es ltimamente el turismo quien ha venido a sustituirlas.

Su principal monumento es la iglesia de San Pedro, en el casco viejo se encuentra el Palacio de Zumaia. La ermita de San Telmo sobre la playa de Itzurun y cerca de los acantilados tiene hermosas vistas.
