If you are looking for a picturesque urban beach, it does not get much better than this. It was August and the beach was filed with thousands of tourists from all over Europe and some were rude. The views are remarkable in daylight and the evening lighting on the boardwalk and around the bay is not to be missed.

Wonderful expanse of beach, but I don't believe I have ever been on as busy a beach before! Barely room to move, which isn't really to my taste. The other two beaches in San Sebastian were much more spacious and the tide doesn't come in quite as far on them, so also easier to find a spot and stay in... More

this is a beautiful beach, especially to walk along at sunset or night. There are quite a few restaurants to get something to eat or just to have a drink to sit and watch the sun go down.

Beautiful beach, excellent location, frequented by young and old. Many surfers have their designated areas and most people just walk down, pile their clothes on the sand and go for a dip throughout the day.

The beach is beautiful. I can't say I have ever been to a more beautiful beach. The sand is kept very clean. Plenty of room to enjoy the day.

Beautiful Beach at the forefront of a Beautiful city. There is a very good shopping area in addition to the Old Town and we spent hours walking around the centre(s) finding the Irish Bars that unfortunately were all closed/not showing the England/Ireland Rugby Friendly in Sept 2015.

This is a must do - just gorgeous ! You cannot come to San Sebastián and not visit this beach ! Beautiful photo opportunity! Hotel Londres has a great spot for a drink outside, under cover, facing the water.

La Concha is a wide, curved beach which shelves gently into the sea. Even on the busiest days in the height of summer it is possible to find space on it. The views of Monte Urgull, Monte Igeldo and Isla Santa Clara provide a wonderful backdrop. Facilities are very good with cafes & bars situated on the promenade more or... More

Awesome and unbelievably beautiful. We're lovers of seascape areas and views. One of the best walks to experience this lovely seaside area and including the walk to view the iron sculpture "Combs of the Winds" by Eduardo Chillida.

The beach is very clean and safe.The safety guard was sitting on the beach to observe the tourists who swam in the sea.The facilities are in the good conditions but there is no fitting room to change the swimming-pants.Maybe I did not find it.You can lie down there for the whole day.Really like it.
