ABOUT San Sebastian


Perfectly nestled between beautiful hills and the golden beaches of the Bay of Biscay, San Sebastian (or Donostia in Basque) is the perfect city to be discovered on foot; either wandering the narrow streets of the historic centre or walking along its most famous beach, La Concha. This seaside city in northern Spain has everything you want for an incredible weekend away: unique culture, striking architecture, picturesque beaches and, of course, delicious food – some even call it Spain’s culinary capital (and that’s saying something!). From multi-course meals in Michelin-starred restaurants to pintxos (the famous Basque equivalent to tapas), Donostia’s gastronomy will not disappoint you.

But San Sebastian is not only a perfect destination for foodies, the city has also become a favourite amongst surfers from all over the world. Zurriola Beach is the most popular spot for locals and tourists alike to gather and enjoy some of the best waves Europe has to offer.
