Closeness to the city and restaurants. Able to rent waterspouts equipment like paddle board, kayak and windsurfing.

A lovely beach! A family beach, and a hip trendy beach all in one place. The views are amazing, easy to walk in the water and around the beach. Definitely worth spending a few hours soaking up the minerals of the sea.

The sea is wonderfully refreshing on a hot day and very deep, so great for swimming! And the sand is amazing too. You might want to check when the tide goes in/out, as the size of the beach changes dramatically! And it can get quite crowded!

Water was cold in July, but other than that, this beach is fantastic. The waves are fun for body surfing and the people-watching is extremely entertaining. It gets packed on the weekends, but that adds to the fun. I'm a beach-lover, and this is one of my favorites in the world for its uniqueness.

La Concha Beach is a great place. It's so good to have the water right next to the centre if town. There's so many bars and restaurants right next door.

The nice thing about this beach is that the waves are small, making it family-friendly, it's easily accessible, and absolutely gorgeous. I personally prefer zurriola beach because there is usually more space and less crowds. During the summer season the beach is complete with bathrooms, showers, lockers, and little txiringitos where you can get cool drinks and ice cream

A beautiful beach along the concha but real estate is of a high premium when the tide comes in as there is a fraction of the beach left at high tide. Great people watching and lovely views everywhere along this beach!

Beautiful colours on a sunny day. Wonderful relaxing walk and view of the beach. Stop and have drinks at the London hotel and enjoy people watching!
