This has to be one of the most beautiful beaches to be found in a city anywhere. On a calm day the water is amazingly clear and great for swimming. The waide beach does become crowded in the afternoons but there always seems to be space to be found.

A wide, vast beach with gentle waves, reasonably soft sand and clear waters, providing the perfect place for an end to end stroll along the shore or a quick dip. Plenty of room to sunbathe, play beach volleyball or beach tennis (Frescobol). For stronger beach waves, head to Zurriola beach which is approx a 20min walk.

fabulous beach stretching for about a mile. Golden sand, very clean, a couple of bars just off the beach and plenty of space for those who don't want to hire a sun Lounger, although they are available if you do

Great city beach, nice sand, shallow in the beginning which makes it kids friendly. The Spa located right at the beach is first class and can get quite busy at the week-ends. The beach is very clean towards the city centre, further away it could be helped with some clean-up.

The beach was a lovely surprise. Protected with a large expanse of sand so plenty of room. Weather was a little showery so did not have a swim. Would love to return.

One of the truly great views in the world. Great for walking end to end. Lots of tourists in August but not overly crowded.

Clean, wide beach. Lots of activities, including a platform you could swim to. Sea calm and safe. Very crowded when we were there as it was hot and sunny!

Lovely to stroll on the sand or on the boardwalk. The sand and surf are mild and serene. Even if you don't bask int he sun, stop for a drink and people watching. Nearby hikes get to see beautiful views of the entire beach from above. Try Mt. Ulia for an easy and steady hike.

I stayed in San Sebastian for 2 nights with my mother, and we stayed around 5 minutes walk away from the beach. We spent quite a bit of time walking along the promenade to the next beach, stopping off to take lots of photos along the way. We had lunch at the other end of the beach and by the... More

I'm certainly no beach person, even when I lived by the beach many years. This one is very urban and caged, and many people like how safe they feel in it. Lots of bars around, and not overly crowded even during the summer season. I was not impressed, as I prefer open wilder beaches.
