Travel to San Sebastian with our sons

Hello All,

We are two fathers planning for a boys week away from driving from Amsterdam to San Sebastian with our teen boys (16,14 and 13) in the first week of Aug. Could you anyone please advise some nice things to do with our kids? I heard that San Sebastian is a surfing paradise. We are looking for some adventures activities like water rafting etc.

Thank you for your help

Water rafting will not be an option, regrettably, unless you drive to the Pyrenees. One of the beaches of SS offers good surfing. Nice Aquarium and nice beaches, if the weather is nice (it´s a rainy area).

As well as regular surfing you can hire bodyboards and stand-up paddle boards too. Another option is walking in the mountains nearby and hiring bikes.

About 1 1/2 hours from San Sebastian you have Gernika and the Urdaibai Reserve, with beautiful beaches, good kayaking, and surfers love the waves in Mundaka

Thank you very much for your feedback. You mentioned about rain in your feedback. During the summer period, does it rain heavily?

Thanks

It rains an average of 185 days a year in the Basque Country, any time of the year. Of course, summer months are normally drier, but SS is not a beach resort as in the Mediterranean, far from it.
