San Sebastian

San Sebastian Extensions

San Sebastian is only twenty kilometres from the French border and, as such, is a cosmopolitan city with Spanish, Basque and French influences. The city is a popular travel destination with great beaches, history and the best food scene in Spain. The following are some of our favourite things to do in San Sebastian:

Concha Beach

River Urumea The largest beach in the city at over 2km, Concha Beach is the best place to go swimming in the sea. The golden sand is good for relaxing and for mingling with locals and other holiday-makers.

Old Town

San Sebastian's old town dates back to before the Middle Ages. There is a real mixture of designs in the buildings, including the pretty church of St. Vincent.

Monte Igueldo

For the best views of San Sebastian, climb Monte Igueldo in the west of the city. From here, you get great views of the city, the sea and (on a good day) France.


Basque Cuisine Pintcos are a kind of Basque tapas which you will see on the top of bars throughout San Sebastian. They vary from simple designs, to incredibly complex and intricate creations. A pintxos tour of the bars of the old town is a great way to spend the evening.

Multiple Michelin Starred Restaurants

San Sebastian is also home to some of the best restaurants in the world. The tasting menus at Martin Berasategui, Arzak and Akelarre are truly exceptional although expensive (150 EUR).
