Donostia-San Sebastián, on the Basque coast, offers one a chance to spend some time at one of the best coastal resorts in all of Spain. This Belle Epoque city on the Bay of Vizcaya offers breathtaking views from nearly every angle. During the long summer days you can sun bathe on it's beautiful white sand beaches of La Concha, Ondarreta and La Zurriola facing the Cantabrian Sea, while at night the famous Pintxos bars in the old quarter (Parte Vieja) await your visit.

The city is also host to the famous International Jazz festival (Jazzaldia) during the month of July, followed by their equally popular International film festival in September.

“Donostia is great”
Reviewed July 19, 2004

You must come to Donostia and see and enjoy this great part of the Basque Country. You´ll have: beaches, see, mountains, restaurants (we're famous just because our meals),... Beautiful places to visit during the day: such as Zarauz, Getaria, Hondarribia and San Juan. A lot of nightlife to have fun. Come and enjoy yourself with us.
