La Concha is fine, but busier and you have to wade out a while before getting deeper water to swim. From Ondarreta you can swim to the rafts anchored out towards the island or you can continue to the island for a refreshment from the cafe and a walk. Its pretty, but unsurprisingly there isn't much there and the beach... More

The Ondarreta Beach is not as well known as the La Concha Beach, yet it is quite good and it is very pleasant to walk alongside this beach and relax and see the scenery.

Yet another excellent beach at Donostia. Take a book with you and enjoy the atmosphere. Beach has good services (toilets, restaurants, lifeguards etc.) and it's probably suitable for everyone.

We went on a clear, beautiful day. We had rented bikes for 8 euros and rode the entire boardwalk. At Ondarreta Beach, we rented sea kayaks from "Alo Kayak" for very cheap and we spent the afternoon kayaking around the beach and Santa Clara Island.

Or so it seemed. At least a lot of families who seemed to be from the area, although also a lot of tourists, of course. It gets very crowded after work hours, but not too cramped. Nice beach kiosk with quite a good selection of snacks and lunch fare.

What a blessing for San Sebastian to have such a lovely beach close to its downtown. There are umbrellas available to rent. The beach is clean, well-maintained and completely safe. Lovely view of the harbour and surrounded by a esplanade-type walkway. Highly enjoyable.

lovely beach with plenty of bins for poo bags! Could only find a couple of cafes nearby but unfortunately none of them [that we found] allowed dogs inside

A picture waiting to be taken. Along the way there are a few little stands selling beer, wine, sandwiches etc. A place to clean your feet of sand everywhere. Very clean. Friendly
