Wonderful fisher town close to San Sebastian
Oct 2020 • Friends
Pasai Donibane is a little fisher town located close to Donostia/San Sebastian, in Gipuzkoa Region, in Basque Country. It is one of the villages of Pasajes/Pasaia and it is the most beautiful of them. In fact, in the village, you can see some churches, the house of Victor Hugo and the main square (very nice old place with some bars and restaurants to eat or drink something in the terrace) and walk around the coast line until almost the lighthouse. From this walk, you can see great views of the bay, really wonderful. Also, from the village, you can see Pasajes de San Pedro located in front of the bay (very beautiful views) and you can go by boat to the other side, very nice little excursion.

Good lunch spot after coastal walk from San Sebastián
Jul 2019
We really enjoyed visiting this beautiful fishing village for lunch after completing the strenuous coastal walk to Pasaia from San Sebastián. You can take the boat for 80 cents per person from the end of the trail at Pasaia San Pedro over to Pasai San Juan (or Donibane in Basque). There are some excellent restaurants in the village as well as some more casual choices.

Beautiful place

Friends took us to visit this place while visiting from Australia. We loved the old winding lanes and beautiful bay. We had lunch in the square overlooking the water. We took a boat ride across the bay for 80c. A beautiful day!

Perfect place to escape the crowds

We stayed in this lovely village for several days in October. While San Sebastián was interesting, I had a sufficient taste of Pintxos bars after one visit and looked forward to returning to the relaxing pace of Pasai Donibane. There are several excellent restaurants in this town, which can only be reached by ferry (.80 € each way, about a 5 minute trip). The narrow streets and passageways, 16th century buildings, steep stairways up the hillsides, and magnificent views of the harbor are photo ready. If you stay here, there are good bus connections to Hondorribia and other charming towns through Erenterria. The bus stops are near the car park at the end of the village.

Came here for lunch after doing the hike over the hill from San Sebastián. You take a little ferry over for .80 euros it comes and goes every 5 mins except during siesta time.
Had a great day and loved it.

Quaint little village.
Jul 2018 • Friends
A beautiful little village. Typical stone constructions. The locals are friendly and the food is marvelous. There is a Michelin star restaurant that has a lobster trap accessible through a hole in the restaurants floor. Can't get any fresher than that.
If you walk past the village there is a great path that follows the coast-line. Great walk and picnic opportunity here.

Very pretty
Jul 2018 • Couples
We walked from San Sebastián along the coast to this small old fishing village and got the boat over the water (80 cents) which was quite an effort but totally worth it. The village has lots of traditional basque architecture and is very pretty. There are restaurants on a small square overlooking the sea. Great little village. We got the E15 bus back to San Sebastián from just outside the old village.

Wonderful walk to pretty fishing village
Jul 2018 • Couples
On our first trip to San Sebastian (and Spain) we decided to get out of the beautiful city and walk to the fishing villages. This takes about 2 and a half hours and the walk itself is ok for people of modest fitness (like me!). As others have said the worst part is the first stretch up from Zurriola Beach. I would suggest sneakers or walking shoes though as it is rough, uneven and slippery in parts. Be careful of the signage, the path you are taking is marked with a red and white strip (and green too when the 2 paths intersect) but avoid any red arrows (without white) - we followed one down just past the first uphill and then had to backtrack (examples in the photos)! For the most part the path is wide so you will know you are on the right track. In terms of the walk itself, there is lovely bush as well as views down to the coast. The stretch into the village down past the lighthouses. Once you get to the villages, it is very picturesque. Take the boat across for .80€, and bikes are allowed for .80€ as well. I suggest lunch in the main square where you can people watch in the sun (siesta doesn'thappen here til 3ish). The bus back to the city takes cash and there is a tourist desk in Victor Hugo's house if you need help. Highly recommend this great day activity.

Wonderful day trip
Jul 2018 • Family
We spent almost the whole day in the area- walking on both sides of the bay and climbing the stairs, swimming close to the cliffs and enjoying the beautiful nature. The small fisherman village is also pretty nice and you can have a great lunch break in the small restaurants there. Can recommend to take the boat and cross on the other side and walk to the stairs that lead to the light house and enjoy the view from there- really great. The boat takes only 2-3min and costs some 0,80€/person.
