Lovely beach to take a swim and also just to walk along its sidewalks, we would do it every day, just to do people watching and admiring all the beauty.

We (wife and 2 kids) spent whole day walking by the beach, doing the most different activities and stoping for a drink or tapas, enjoying every single meter.

Start at the afar beach, walk through town and end up here for a great day. Visit the Cafe de la Concha whilst you are there for superb coffee. Bus to campsite stops outside on way back.

I love this beach. You can swim, kayak, sun bathe, exercise, go topless or not. There are plenty of people watching opportunities. You can sip a glass of sangria munch on tapas. The people are friendly and the beach is well groomed.

The beach is great and the water is even nice in the winter. The sand is clean as well as the water. We enjoy the spa at La Perla then I went into the water with all the old men in the morning. It was really fun!!

This beach is very unique, and actually reminded me a bit of Hawaii. The tides coming in and out were spectacular to watch, and at high tide the kayakers are quite entertaining! My only disappointment was that we tried to rent kayaks and paddleboards, and there was only one business that rented, and they had extremely limited hours in early... More

Northern Spain is full of contrasts. Having looked at wine regions, historic sites, bustling cities and stunning scenery, it was great to find an interesting beach to relax on. More of a millpond when we visited, the water and sand were clean and it provided a great walk on the steps of the fascinating San Sebastian.

A real beautiful scene awaits: a wide sandy beach, a parallel boardwalk, great views of the surrounding hills and islands, and the adjacent hotels and restaurants. San Sebastian was unknown to us before our visit, but it should be on everyone's must-see list.
