Beautiful and breathtaking at sunset, this beach is famous for its very wide, sandy beach and the many surfers that come here year round. Definitely nice and it will be good to come back for a dip in the summer when it will be warmer

As it was January there was limited swimming, but the beach is lovely. It's that archetypal crescent beach that you think all beaches should be. There's an approx 3km esplanade that is very nice for a run. Have a look at the Miramar gardens too.

This is the beach where you feel the hart beat of the city. When we came here we walked in the sunset. The sea was very rough because it was full moon and high tide. It was nice to watch people surf and kayak in...More

A great place to stretch ones legs, get a sense of the sea and town and the life these lucky San Sebastiános (or whatever they are called!) live. A beautiful bay that can be seen very nicely from the 2 hills that bookend it.

I don’t think so. There are on the other beaches but La Concha is the nicest one and best for swimming.

Yes it will be open in fact nice to visit off season. Its a pretty large town not just a tourist place. But the weather is less predictable - oceanic influences mean wet winters and sometimes summers but its a beautiful town.
