San Sebastian City Guide

Explore the charming streets, experience the dynamic culture of the city and soak up the Spanish sun while enjoying the view over the Bay of Biscay.

San Sebastian is a fascinating city and a symbol of Basque culture and cuisine. This coastal city is located in the Basque Country, an autonomous community of Spain. All year San Sebastian is a hub of activity, with film and music festivals, religious celebrations, theatrical performances, beach parties and buzzing nightclubs. This attractive and ornate city is a dream come true for photographers, thanks to its 19th Century architecture, beautiful beaches and surrounding mountain landscape.

Pay a visit to the 18th Century lighthouse and enjoy incredible views over the bay. If you’re travelling with little ones, pay a visit to Monte Igueldo, an old-fashioned amusement park. Here you’ll find all the classic rides that will keep the kids entertained for hours. 

The town has three beaches, all within the confines of the bay, of which Playa de la Concha is the largest. Play sports on the golden sands, learn to surf at Playa Zurriola or rent a canoe at Ondarreta. Stretch out on the beach or get carried away by the waves with a little windsurfing while staying at one of the city’s gorgeous beach resorts.

Unwind in one of the many green spaces of San Sebastián. Parque Cristina Enea is a great place for a stroll and a picnic, while the gardens of the Royal Palace Miramar offer stunning views over the Playa de la Concha and Ondaretta. 

Discover the best in the Basque cuisine, especially the pintxos, the Basque equivalent of tapas. Feast on delicious squid, anchovies, wild mushrooms and other fresh regional produce. Enjoy a glass of cider with your pintxos before hitting the bars in the old town centre, where you can dance to anything from salsa music to modern dance tracks from top DJs.

San Sebastian is best explored on foot or bicycle, meaning you can get a little exercise and fresh air thrown into the mix too. There are bike paths everywhere in the centre, but if you get tired, the bus network is cheap and easy to use.
