Biscay close coast sailing

We recently crossed the Biscay and Arrived to Bayonne yesterday. Took 38 hours from Ile D'Yeu. We did not see many boats on the way. Perfect condition sea and windwise. Now heading towards Spain. Any suggestion tips and trix concerning navigation and ports in this area is highy welcome. 36 ft Boat with 1.95m draft.

Donostia (san Sebastian) and its beautiful bay (concha)
Getaria, Mutriku, Getxo (Bilbao, museum), Laredo (beach and large marina)
Santander, S. Vicente (draft ?)
Ribadesella, Gijon (town),

Northern Spain is one of my favourite cruising areas. Beautiful wherever you go. Luarca is missing in the list above...
