Excellent sandy beach, nice for strolling and enjoying the views of the picturesque bay of Donostia.Must be really crowded in the summer. The setting is almost Mediterranean.

Beautiful natural setting. Nice wide sandy beach protected from severe surf. Promenade above it is great too. Could use some cafes along it.

As expected, this beach is ridiculously crowded, but that does not take away for the beauty of it. Picture perfect with plenty of space to laze around and enjoy the wonderful energy of Donostia.

This Beach is apparently famous and really is very pretty and clean. The waves are a bit dumpy, but plenty of surf/standing boarders, swimmers and sunbathers. We are lucky to be staying right opposite so can enjoy this view - highly recommend! When the tide is out the beach is huge but when in not much sand left to sit... More

This is a great little beach right on the edge of the city. This in and of itself is unusual. We were there in October so I can't vouch for the water temps other times of the year but it was cold (62 F) the first week of Oct. Aside from sitting on the beach and swimming - the promanade... More

Beautiful - do not miss. Enjoyed very much walking on the promenade as well as running in the morning. Would love to come back in summer to get in the water.

There's no way to not see La Conch Beach from almost anywhere in City Center of San Sebastian. You can sit and watch the tide roll in or take your shoes off and stroll along the sand. When the tide comes up it's fun to watch the waves crash into the seawall. SUP, swim, kayak or surf in the water... More
