The most beautiful beach for swimming and sun-bathing, a wonderful Old Town, and the best “pintxos”, i.e. tapas, along with some of the best restaurants, in the world. ARZAK, with its Michelin stars. There’s a spa right beside the beach; you can have a sauna...More

Soak in the sun on the big open space of La Concha. You won’t sit on top of people and you can enjoy a couple of cafes and coffee shops just up on the strip 👌🏾

Nice and classic place but overcrowded and with too hectic atmosphere to be able to enjoy or to relax there.

I'm the type of traveler that likes to get the lay of the land, identify what are the must sees in attractions, then the must eats, then hanging out like a local to soak up the culture. 3 days in San Sebastian was enough time...More
