march/april is a little late to get the best of the swell in bilbao, as most of the winter swell is gone by the end of feb. still, you could get lucky and a few pulses might come through. if you're into a slower, more crumbling wave, la triangu in la salvaje, just to the southwest of sopelana is a good wave. just on the other side of the point is sopelana's main beaches, which suck up any swell that's around here. good quality beachbreaks. otherwise, bakio is also a good option, about 40 mins from bilbao to the east, on the way to mundaka. otherwise, there are loads of quality breaks in cantabria to the west. spots like liencres, laredo and el brusco are all pretty open to the north-westerly swells, and are within 45 mins drive.
if i were you i'd bring either a longboard or fish with for the smaller days, on top of the normal shortboard.
