The beach was straight across from our accommodation. It is beautiful to ride or walk all around the beach front early morning or until late in the evening when locals are out walking. .

This is a beautiful beach right near downtown San Sebastian. We spent a couple of afternoons here and loved every minute. The water is cold (but not horribly so) and the sand is very fine and soft. A warning for the prudish...the beaches here are topless...don't be surprised to see many women (sans swimtops) soaking up the afternoon sun!

This is the best city beach I have ever visited. Really beautiful sand and water and surrounded by mountains. Breath-taking!

One of the most beautiful beaches and cities I have ever been in Spain. Even though I am from another city, I admit San Sebastian is the best one in terms of quality of life and beauty.

We visited La Concha Beach one hot afternoon with our 1-year old twins; they loved playing in the shallow water, sitting and splashing in the gentle waves. The beach is a thin strip at high tide but has a very gentle, almost flat, gradient so it gets enormously larger as the tide goes out. The sand is gorgeous, tan, medium-grained, quartz-dominated sand and is not at all silty. The water in this protected bay, which has mooring buoys for small boats, is warmer and much calmer than at Zurriola Beach. There is a large, designated swimming area, marked by buoys, which has a floating platform with a water slide. The arch-way under the Paseo de La Concha provides a nice shaded place to do a quick change out of the sun and there are water faucets to rinse off sandy feet before leaving the beach.
