“I have seen dawn and sunset on moors and windy hills Coming in solemn beauty like slow old tunes of Spain.” — John Masefield
San Sebastian is a small city known as Donostia in the Basque language. Shimmering above the breathtaking Concha Bay, this elegant town has a favored location with even more famous golden beaches.
Some of the beaches of San Sebastián are the beautiful La Concha and the spacious Zurriola which is especially attractive for the surfers. Every summer a huge number of tourists flock to this town in Northern Spain to occupy every square inch. The Isla de Santa Clara is also very well known among travellers. Ferries leave a couple of times an hour for the picturesque island so it’s easily accessible.
La Playa de la Concha, is a golden sandy beach sweeping from Parte Vieja (the old town in the heart of the city) in the east, all the way to to Monte Igueldo in the west and it is a wonderful feature of this city.
It is probably, if not, the only city beach in Europe and possibly the world, you’ll want to spend a while splashing at in the sea.
