When visiting San Sebastian in March, there were not many people in swimming suits. Still too cold, so stroll along the main city beach seemed just right. Nice views. Probably crowded in high season. High tides, quickly appearing - when going toward Monte Igueldo (early...More

Stunning beach for sunbathing, napping and swimming. Gorgeous stroll along the upper walkway all times of day. Locals and tourists gather to walk and talk and share memories together! Beautiful views!

Ok for a walk. It has a nice view, but there's nothing special to do except watersports. You can find a few shops and restaurants nearby, but there're better ones e.g in the historic center

Great each for swimming and view from the castle. It's a big beach with yellow sand and good water. There is plenty of space so you can pick a spot and it's free.

Beautiful large (and very clean!) beach. Lots of nice restaurants and cafes nearby. I visited June 1st and although the weather wasn't ideal (was only about 21 degrees - but sunny!) we still had a good time just relaxing on the beach having a drink...More

This beach is stunning sandy and so close to the hotel and tapas . Beware it's topless Europe, lots of activity

The La Concha Beach is in a sheltered cove on the north facing coast of Spain. The large expanse of sand is popular with locals and visitors alike, especially during the siesta. Note that the water is from the North Atlantic, and is somewhat chilly!

This is a lovely area to walk along and the bay is generally full of swimmers, paddle boards, dog walkers and sub bathers - fabulous views and a lovely walk.

Probably the cleanest beach I have ever seen. when the tide is out, do not miss the artwork in the sand...pretty incredible details. the walk from one end to the other is a pretty good jaunt with plenty of distractions to make it that much...More

I guess the other side beach you said is zurriola. Because the other beach which is called ondarreta is connected to la concha. Zurriola beach is nice as it is famous for big great waves. You can spend an half of day... More

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
