“Beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

This is a gorgeous beach. It is deep and wide with fine sand. It is surrounded by gorgeous architecture and sculptures. There are bars and restaurants nearby. There is an island near to the beach. There is a sandy bottom in the water. It is great for couples or families. The only negative is that the beach shrinks considerably when the tide rolls in and the sand remains rather wet when it goes out but hey that's nature. I recommend the beach when you are in Donostia, one of the best in Europe.

“ONE OF THE NICEST IN EUROPE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Let me preface this by saying that we're not really "beach people." We don't sit on the sand in bathing suits slathered in oil baking. Not our thing. But we went a few times because it is the prettiest beach I've seen in Europe so far. Shaped like a shell with huge sandy beaches it all looked so inviting. The boardwalk circling the beach is from another era but people promenade at all hours of the day as they did in decades gone by. Such a pleasant experience. Go in the evening when it's cooled down a bit before you wander off to your 10pm dinner. You may forget to even GO for dinner. It's that nice.

“I'd have to say it's the best beach and water to swim in!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

That shape (la concha) makes this beach so ideal for sunning, for swimming, for walking, for spending time with family, friends - and just to watch people so happy with simple fun as sand, water and sun!

“great surfer watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

i'd be a little afraid of braving the waves, though it was terrific to watch the surfing schools. Clean beach and places to wash off nearby.
