The sister beach to the famous La Concha, Zurriola is not to be missed when in San Sebastian. Offering a different venue than the calmer Concha, this is where all the locals and travellers surf and take on the ocean. Check it out as well...More

Rough waves due to being more open to the sea and thus surfers love this beach. I wouldn't swim there as it is a bit rough and also there are two other much nicer beaches for swimming but this is surfers paradise.

You can feel the heat emanating off the glorious golden sand and they have sun beds for hire. Only on small drinks/snack stall. In the Gros area of San Sebastián. Sits next to the vast (ugly) conference centre.

Beautiful beach, sitting at the west end (in front of the Convention Center) in the afternoon, as the setting sun lights up the hill on the east side. Can get a bit crowded on a sunny day, but not too bad compared to Cadiz or...More
