The beach is lovely and clean and is ideal for families. We spent most of our holiday at the far end near the steps which lead to concha beach, as we found this a little quieter than other areas. Would return to Ondarreta, we had a great holiday.

The shorebreak at this beach is flater than La Concha next door. Both beaches can be crowded but still have plenty of room as they are both so large.

A quick walk from La Concha Beach, beautiful and worth going up the funicular to see spectacular 180 degree vistas

if you follow the locals' ritual at the beach, you'll take a walk all along the Concha beach, climb, sort out, negotiate the wet rocks to cross onto the Ondarreta Beach to the other side, take a plunge into clear waters..then take a longer walk to the end and alas! touch the stone wall before you turn around..apparently it needs...

This is similar to La Concha but quieter. It is further away from the Old Town which is the reason. It is probably better for families with children as there are plenty of facilities for them.

A large beach with showers, clean( the sand seams to be cleaned each day, the water is quieter than in the center of the concha.

At thus time of year, there's not an inch to spare on the crowded golden sands but clean, clear water and beautiful views make this a great holiday choice

One of the best city beaches I have ever seen. Very mixed crowd, with a bias toward middle-aged. Some families, but not too much ruckus. Not a cool place, but it's clean, beautiful, and the water temperature is perfect. Minus for the absence of good eating options. There are some shacks that offer beer, ice cream and some simple fare,... More

I love to have a goal when I swim. Here, it is very nice to have a beautiful island a few hundreds meters from the coast: great swimming!
