“Overrated Beach”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

When my partner and I went here it was overly packed and busy with little areas to lay however has a beautiful view. This is probably my opinion coming from Perth, Australia where the beaches are much nicer and less busy. Was also quite littered.

“August Festival season”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Had a fantastic few days camping nr San Sebastian Donostia and what a lovely beach - La Concha has safe swimming and has a changing facility with showers which were lovely and warm, everyone used to get ready to stay late on the beach for the firework displays which run every evening. The whole city was alive and great fun... Highly recommended, for families, couples and everyone who loves food and the sea.

Lovely seashore and surrounding buildings but murky waters, not conducive to those used to clearer Mediterranean waters/

“A nice urban beach with plenty of sand”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

The main beach is a good one for taking your kids for sand castle building. Our experience in the 'off season' of autumn was that it was reasonably empty with no umbrellas or deck chairs. There were ramps down to the sand as well as stairs. The sand was reasonably clean save the typical cigarette butts. We didn't try the water but there were a few people about in swimwear, sunbathing rather than swimming. There's an underground car park nearby.

“Charming seaside”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Nice stroll along the harbor, can walk on the cemented promenade or on the beach in the sand. Street performers and a carousel for your entertainment. Safe at night. Close to everything.
