I was today in this beach. It was surprising the amounts of people in there! Never thought that Donostia could look like Mallorca. The weather was amazing but some people from there told I took a nice and lucky day. Anyway, it was hot and the water surprisingly warm! I've been swiming at 7p.m.

We probably went in the wrong month. It was windy. this is not the point. The problem was, the beach is dirty.

This has to rank as one of the best beaches in the world. Lovely soft sand, calm warm waters gently shelving away, with the pintxos bars of the old town within an easy walk. It is an amazing sight to watch the thousands of people walking along the shoreline. If this is not enough you also have an amazing view.

La Concha is one of the nicest urban beaches in the world. It's wonderful to sit on as well as to look at. I'm not a huge beach person, but I was there several times during my week in SB. It's too nice to be missed.

Amazing beach. Lovely clear water and beautiful views. Feels safe and clean. Only gripe is that the showers are not right next to the walkways (so you can't quite get all the sand off!)
