Wish I came here during summer season. I'm a Cypriot and I'm used to beautiful beaches but seeing this amazing beach and the ocean (even in winter season) is an unforgettable experience. Take your shoes off and walk along. ✌️

The Concha beach is very nice. The best place to see the whole beach is from Monte Igueldo. Book a room with sea view at Hotel Mercure and enjoy the view.

The morning walk along the long walkway you could view the very clever people making sand art and you can drop your donation onto the sand from the walkway

It is beautiful! Even in the winter time it's a pleasure to take a walk along this beach located in the heart of the city, it looks amazing. On the embankment there is a ferris wheel and some facilities for kids, and next the beach...More

The center of this beautiful city, even in winter. Stunning views and a long promenade that lets you walk around the 2 miles of beach. People do water sports year round.

Went to La Concha mid-November, visited San Sebastian for the marathon running event. Not the warmest times of the year, cloudy with sunny spells but still a fabulous beach. Quite long and very wide, decent paved promenade with beautiful sea views, well worth a visit.

If you visit San Sebastian you can't miss this beach....it's the middle of the city. The first day here there were guys surfing right off the wall....but that was during a storm. Normally this is a very quiet beach with very little surf due to...More

No experience with dog care, I am afraid. We arrived by cruise ship and only there for one day.

Whether you can officially or not - people do take their dogs to the beach. The ones we saw in the evening were having lots of fun.

Will be renting an apartment on Passeo Miraconcha in June. Any recommendation for a good place to get fresh produce and other food items. Thanks, P

You have a 'Todo Todo' shop very near you on Paseo de Miraconcha. This is a small supermarket which will be convenient for picking up items at short notice. Or there is a big hypermarket at the Garbara shopping centre on the outskirts of town. It is about a 10 minute drive and is accessible by bus too. In San Sebastian itself there is a Super Amara in the San Martín shopping centre on Calle Urbieta. Finally you have the Bretxa market at the eastern edge of the Old Town.

My son (16 yr) and I are planning to go Spain in July 2010. We are coming from Amsterdam and like to stay for 7-8 days and then back to Amsterdam. We like eating, visiting cultural sites, shopping and relaxing / sitting in an outdoor cafe/terrace. For Madrid we like to stay in Puerta del Sol area, Valencia in Barrio del Carmen and for San Sebastian in Parte Vieja/Centro near La Concha Beach. Is it possible to do 2 cities in 8 days ?

I think you should do Madrid and San Sebastian, and fly between those two cities. San Sebastian in July is wonderful and a very relaxing stay there, where you can walk everywhere and have a good time. It is famous for its good food, because the Basque chefs are considered the best in Spain.
