The ultimate weekend break

San Sebastian offers the perfect getaway during the winter or summer, come rain or shine. The beaches are beautiful and as you look out on the bay from Playa De La Concha or Playa de Gros the view is reminiscent of a Caribbean island with sparkling waters and wooded islands. Ondarreta ("little beach" in Euskera) , is connected to the larger, more popular Playa de la Concha, this is a great place to observe the sailing boats. You can also stroll along the walkway and relax in the small park area overlooking the beach. You can also enjoy traditional olives and calamari at the Ondarreta rooftop café.
San Sebastian is a very popular spot for stag do's and hen nights. You can enjoy the local San Sebastian hospitality and thriving night life while absorbing the Basque culture. For the adventurous groups you could also incorporate surf lessons, or a day in the mountains. If you are organizing a stag or hen do, then contact us for ideas.
When the sun starts to go down you will see a very different side to San Sebastian. The restaurants and bars come alive, pop in and out of tapas bars in the old town for tapas, pinchos and local cider or sangria. You will not find better Spanish food anywhere in the world than you will in the famous San Sebastian restaurants. The atmosphere is lively, exciting and unique. A truly remarkable city to spend an evening. After dinner, promenade beside the Playa de La Concha where the lights sparkle, reflect in the gently lapping ocean.
Other attractions include the Baroque Church of Santa Maria , the Gothic Church of San Vicente, and the Museo de San Telemo, a former 16th century convent.
For spectacular views of the bay and town, climb atop Mount Urgull and Mount Igueldo.
