Fodor's Review

San Sebastián's shell-shape main beach is one of the most famous urban beaches in the world. Night and day, rain or shine, it's filled with locals and tourists alike, strolling and taking in the city's skyline and the uninhabited Isla de Santa Clara just offshore. Several hotels line its curved expanse, including the famed Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra. The beach has clean, pale sand and few rocks or seaweed, but only a bit of shade, near the promenade wall. Lounge chairs are available for rent. La Concha is safe night and day. Amenities: lifeguards; showers; toilets. Best for: sunrise; sunset; walking.
