We had the perfect view of the beach form our hotel room. In fact, I strolled the beach each morning before breakfast, some were more daring, taking a dip in what I expect was the bracing water.

This beach is breath taking. I could not get enough of it as it was big, beautiful and healing. San Sebastián is a very special place

It was nice to sit and watch the world go by. Even in December there will still people swimming in the sea. A very well kept beach and excellent morning or afternoon stroll.

Great walkside, fantastic view. The sea is brave, the sky is blue and white (with clouds), in memory to the local footbal team, Real Sociedad. Must-see, must-feel place

This is such an amazing beach. I was able to sit and take in its beauty. Here, you're able to see impressive mountains as well and from another perspective you'll see Jesus on top of one them, looking out onto the beach.

So much room to walk around, on the beach itself the promenade next to it or on the hill across. If you like surfing apparently this is a good place.

ZURRIOLA Beach seems to be busy all the time with surfers and children. It is smaller than La Concha which is busy on weekends but is quieter during the week. La Concha is the more beautiful beach to look at. We stayed... More
