Nice wide beach with lots of clean lovely sand. The water is beautiful and clean also. The only down side is if you walk to the end of beach heading to La Concha you cannot exit here - you have to walk back due to the high walls alongside. Very pretty and nice family beach.

I have sunbathed, relaxed, and swum in the warm waters of Ondarreta Beach on countless occasions. It is clean, the people are friendly, and it remains one of my favorite beaches in the world.

More family oriented than La Concha and Zurriola, it's a wonderful beach to relax with perfect sand and plenty of activities near by.

Even on high tide this beach has guaranteed sand and ideal for swimming out to the island. Clean and good toilet/ shower facilities near by and little bars.

My wife and I liked this beach. It was crowded but the sand was drier than Concha and it was easy to get to the water. It is in the city but seems more secluded than Concha. There were a lot of families there on the weekend. It is nice not to deal with loud motorized water sports or people... More

A well serviced beach a 20 minute walk away from the center. Nicer and less crowded than La Concha. Accesible even at high tide

This beach is a twenty minute walk from the main area but has a larger sandy area especially when the tide is in. Calm water and lifeguards make it safe for families and there is a pool on the beach where you can learn to swim.

Lovely beach and well worth a visit. Still hard to get my head around the fact the beach is in the city. Clean sand and very clear water. Unfortunately we drove over an hour to go to these beaches in San Sebastian after reading from other reviewers that dogs were allowed on the beaches. They aren't! Not on any. And... More

Adjoining La concha beach and a delightful walk from the centre of San Sebastian this beach is mostly tourist free, but it is an easy walk from the town centre and has vast expanses of golden sand and views to die for. Just go there !

I was sceptical at first about a beach in the centre of town but this was a surprise. It was clean, perfectly civilised with families, young and old. The water was crystal clear and warm. The usual stuff could be rented and refreshments were available as was fresh water for cleaning off sand and, more unusually, for drinking.
