This northern town is somewhat unexpected.
Settled in Basque country, there are three main beaches that rest right in the Bay of Biscay. Picturesque as any European beach, the slow relaxed style of Spain will shower you with its full charm. Here you can spend your days on the clean, sandy beaches and rent a kayak to make your way out to the Isla de Santa Clara. Here you may be rewarded with the ever elusive fourth beach — a small strip along the island only large enough for a few people to sit and enjoy.
But, never mind the beautiful beaches.
This small town has multiple Michelin star restaurants and is home to some of the best restaurants in the world. With charming pintxos (Basque style tapas) bars, a memorable and exciting dining experience is around virtually every corner. Before you know it, you’ll be buying into the Spanish lifestyle. Spending the warm summer days at the beach, making your way to your hotel for a much needed siesta. Next, you’ll be spending the night eating delicious pintxos with a glass of sangria in hand. Sweep your way late into the night and the early morning dining and drinking with friends, both old and new!
There are several areas to the town of San Sebastian, each with its own unique feel.
Walk through old town (Parte Vieja) to admire the truly unique architecture and authentic Spanish culture. This area is home to some of San Sebastian’s most popular pintxo bars. Continue onto the east side of the river and you’ll find a completely different feel in the surfing beach and surrounding shops and restaurants — filled with a younger crowd and relaxed atmosphere.
Whether you want to come for the beaches, the world renowned food, the unique Spanish culture, to go surfing, or simply to relax in a small cafe sipping rich espresso, San Sebastian is the perfect location that will thrill and surprise you. If this sounds like the perfect fit for you, we’d be happy to arrange an itinerary to suit you!
