This is a gorgeous stretch of beach with the background of mountains and a lovely promenade beside it! We enjoyed looking down on the sand art from the promenade. An incredible view of the beach is from the top of the funicular on Monte Igueldo....More

Wish I came here during summer season. I'm a Cypriot and I'm used to beautiful beaches but seeing this amazing beach and the ocean (even in winter season) is an unforgettable experience. Take your shoes off and walk along. ✌️

The Concha beach is very nice. The best place to see the whole beach is from Monte Igueldo. Book a room with sea view at Hotel Mercure and enjoy the view.

The morning walk along the long walkway you could view the very clever people making sand art and you can drop your donation onto the sand from the walkway

It is beautiful! Even in the winter time it's a pleasure to take a walk along this beach located in the heart of the city, it looks amazing. On the embankment there is a ferris wheel and some facilities for kids, and next the beach...More

The center of this beautiful city, even in winter. Stunning views and a long promenade that lets you walk around the 2 miles of beach. People do water sports year round.

Went to La Concha mid-November, visited San Sebastian for the marathon running event. Not the warmest times of the year, cloudy with sunny spells but still a fabulous beach. Quite long and very wide, decent paved promenade with beautiful sea views, well worth a visit.

No experience with dog care, I am afraid. We arrived by cruise ship and only there for one day.

Whether you can officially or not - people do take their dogs to the beach. The ones we saw in the evening were having lots of fun.
