Beach, Culture and the Sun
With all the historical and architectural buildings and churches in Spain, it’s easy to forget that there are also lovely beaches along its coastal areas particularly in San Sebastian, which is not quite well-known to most travellers. However, if you’re looking to spend a relaxing day in a beach with the best views and quick access to the city, then the city, which is also known as Donostia, is perfect for you.
Located in the northern outskirts of the Basque Country, San Sebastian crescent coast makes for a picture-perfect relaxation scene. Painted with its golden sand and the beautiful blue-green water, it is a favourite among tourists. It’s two main beaches are the La Concha and the La Zurriola. The former is larger and is mostly visited for a more relaxing escape under the sun. It is protected from the sea and has fully-equipped lifeguards during the day. The latter, meanwhile, is the perfect place to go for an adventure. La Zurriola is a surf beach with high waves and other beach sports to offer.
Aside from surfing, there are also other activities you can do in San Sebastian. You can take a short hike to visit the Christ statue on top of a hill in between the beaches or take a longer, more arduous climb to the Pasai/San Pedro. There is a also a court for tennis or squash, ride the tourist land train, go to the aquarium by the Paseo de Kaik, go kayaking on Ondarreta beach, go water skiing on the same beach or go to the nearby amusement park.
The city is relatively small and it is easy to just leave your campervan and walk around to tour all the sights and sounds. Discover great and new eats in the restaurants that line the beaches or go shopping on a rainbow of clothes, shoes and accessories in San Sebastian’s high-end shops. Visit other locations in Spain like Malaga, Bilbao and Madrid with your campervan!
