Things to Do in San Sebastian
If you’re not sure where to stay in San Sebastian, we have a suggestion: park yourself near the beaches! The good news is they’re everywhere. There’s so many beaches, there are even different types of beaches for you to see. If you want a spot that's more low-key and relaxing, then check out Ondaretta Beach, which has a bike-friendly boardwalk. For more fist-pumping action, head to La Concha Beach to see street entertainers, shops and an active scene where the beautiful come to "get seen" with sun cream.
San Sebastian is also home to Michelin-starred restaurants, so make sure you indulge in the local gastro scene. It’s well-known for "pintxos”, or fish and meat on pieces of bread. Technically they’re snacks, but you can load up on these delicious morsels pretty quickly. Book a food tour…or just hop on a bus and sample the cuisine at several establishments—your friends back home will want to hear all about it.
Getting to and Around San Sebastian
The city's infrastructure makes it very easy to get from its two international airports, San Sebastian Airport (EAS) and the nearby Biarritz-Anglet-Bayonne Airport (BIQ) to our San Sebastian hotels. Both airports offer shuttle service to the city, as well as bus service within San Sebastian. For a really fun holiday adventure, rent a motorbike to zoom through the streets with ease.
Wotif makes booking San Sebastian packages as easy as a Spanish beach holiday. If you’d like to extend your annual leave, then make tracks for a famous city on Spain’s east coast. Don’t worry, our Barcelona accommodation is just as affordable. What are you waiting for?
