    La concha is aptly named. Beautiful!
    Wow! What a fantastic beach! Huge cove with shallow waters safe for all the family. You can swim out to santa Clara island in the middle of the bay. Take a trip to the top as its a bird sanctuary then chill out before a swim back to LA concha. Plenty of eateries surrounding the beach and if you want to view la concha in all its glory a walk to the end if the beach takes you to the funicular. Take a trip for around 4 euros to the viewpoint and amusement park, bar, restaurant at the top. Must have panoramic photos from here of the fantastic la concha beach abd the old town in the background. Simply you cannot go to san sebastian without enjoying this beach!

    A beautiful place we will return to.
    Such a beautiful vista with the coastline and the island. Sand was lovely. When we arrived on a sunny day the beach was very busy, but the next day was not so sunny and it was quiet. We still swam in the sea and felt safe leaving some belongings on the beach.

    Truly one of Spain's best
    La Concha has been named one of the world's best beaches by travelers. And it's worthy of it's title. This is one of my favorite beaches in northern Spain. It's very big, clean and accessible. It's a city beach, so sidewalks and building border it, but that's what makes it so special. After you've spent time on the beach, you are steps away from some of the best food in the country. I've considered moving here, just so I could walk it daily!

"A Lota" Restaurant in the Fisherman's Village is by far the Best Seafood Restaurant in the town. Paul and his good wife Sylvia run the business together and are a super team. Great food, great service, spotlessly clean, friendly, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and always a welcome. Whether just a coffee, a drink, lunch or an evening meal, it's the place to go.. Can't recommend it highly enough.

This is one of the urban beaches in San Sebastián that can be accessed from a long promenade. It is a lovely sandy beach. It was not too crowded when we visited. It is easy to reach the water. The water is cold on entry but after a few minutes, quite refreshing. The waves are powerful so be prepared to be tossed around a little bit, but when we were there, people were swimming and there was a whole gaggle of children who went further out than we did (I’m pretty short and like to stay where I can theoretically put my feet on the ground and have my head above water) and they were all perfectly fine, so it’s clearly quite safe. We had a great time splashing around and then drying off in the sun. It was a nice break from the usual tourist activities of visiting museums and shopping. There are bathrooms accessible from the promenade and they also have water spouts at every beach entrance for cleaning off your feet. This was a highlight of San Sebastián for sure.

For some reason , the beach is now harder to stay on due to the tides and erosion. It’s great sand and there’s plenty of space to socially distance . The gentle slope of the sand makes the water safe for even young children. Not many restaurants or bars easily accessible from beach . Toilets and showers plentiful.

It is the city beach of San Sebastian. For a city beach it is pretty ok, definitely better than the city beaches I have seen in South of Spain. The islands on the background make a cool photo spot. The tides change a lot during the day, in the afternoon the beach strip was much smaller. It got very full on the weekend! Nice atmosphere.

Really nice beach smack in the city! Even on a cloudy Sunday with only 23 degrees there were many people on the beach and in the water.
The beach itself is a nice sight but also from the beach the vue is lovely.
The tides are changing every 6 hours and it is fun to see what a difference it makes!

We walked the entire length of the beach along the promenade that encircles it. It was a great vantage point for taking in the sights and people watching. The beach appeared to have enough space to accommodate multitudes.

Not exactly beach weather but a walk here even in February clears the cob webs. Super clean and soft sand you can walk on it all day. Sea breeze in your face you feel refreshed after a morning walk here!
