The largest beach in Europe (I think). A lovely curving shape with Art Deco promenade. Note the tide comes in so in the afternoon the beach becomes narrower. Sand was beautiful, great for children as is San Sebastian. La Perla a good spot for anytime drink and food right on the beach.

You can rent a locker in the middle of the beach rotunda for 1.5 euros and 6.5 euros deposit. Amazingly beautiful beach that fits all ages with all the facilities you could ask for, for a reasonable price

This is a very beautiful beach that attracts a lot of visitors. Because of this beach and other beauties in San Sebastian the city is a very popular destination in the north of Spain.

We swam in La Concha Beach a few times and the water was nearly always safe for families, as the waves are not rough. There are 2 pontoons out towards the deep water which are easily reachable when the tide is out as the beach is extended by about 80 metres and those pontoons provide good diving platforms. Showers and... More

San Sebastián's jewel of a beach extends in conch shell form across the coast and is a delight despite the crowds. Don't be fooled by the throng, there's room for everyone and it's the most relaxed beach we've ever had the pleasure to experience. All comers are here in what should be the ultimate posing beach but it simply isn't.... More

We don't usually go on the beach but this was an exception and very nice too. Would have been excellent if there were sun beds available to hire.

Beautiful beach (if you like zillions of people :-)). Would be great for kids. We just enjoyed a walk along the promenade.

This beach is just beautiful, the water is refreshingly cool and there's even slippery dips on pontoon platforms a couple hundred metres out in the water. So much fun! The tide does start to come in quite high in the afternoon so keep an eye on your things so they don't get washed away. Definitely one of my favourite beaches... More

Great beach, with life guards and nice small waves. Snack facilities close by - does get very busy. Very child friendly
