With one of the best urban beaches in Europe (La Concha), some excellent restaurants, and elegance that rivals many European capitals, San Sebastian fully deserves to be called the shining jewel of the Basque Country.

Surrounded by beautiful green hills, this popular seaside resort is located at a stone’s throw from France. Check out the city’s Old Town for trendy designer boutiques, pintxos bars, and top-notch restaurants. Stroll the elegant Paseo de la Concha, hike to the top of Monte Igueldo for the best views of the town or go swimming in the shallow waters of La Concha beach. San Sebastian won’t disappoint you.
