San Sebastián vs Costa Brava,for 2 girls in mid 30's, help?

Hi....we are 2 mid 30's girls flying from NYC to spend 4 days in Barcelona. We are looking for one more place to explore for 3 days. Are interests are sun, fun, good food, and some beach time. We are interested in being in a happening area with other English speaking tourists. Please advise as to which destination is best as well as specific area to stay. Will need to choose accommodations too. Thanks for your help!!!

San Sebastián all the way! More Michelin stars than Paris, good beaches, great people, and lots to explore.

It would be criminal to fly all the way from NYC and miss probably the best city in Europe.

As for where to stay, depends on budget etc but SS is full of great options for all travellers

San Sebastian is unlike all other parts of Spain and as mentioned above has some of the best food and drink in the country (maybe even Europe). There are English speaking tourists here but Costa Brava will certainly have more if that is a concern.

San Sebastian and you really should extend your trip to have at least 5 days in San Sebastian if you're going in the summer.
