It has few beaches divided from each other and that is why you do not end up one big beach crowded with tourists...Also, it is not the first destination that come to tourists' mind as San Sebastian.

Wide expanse of golden sand with a view of the mountains beyond(Picos de Europa). We went at low tide when there are interesting rock pools to explore. Take your own shade.

Very nice beach, soft sand close to the opening of the bay. At the far end, there is a beautiful lagoon where you can climb the rocks and take some great pictures. It was my favorite beach in the area.
