San Sebastián (Basque: Donostia)
It is nearly impossible not to fall madly in love with this city.
As my friends told me and I agree, accommodation standards in San Sebastián are generally good, but prices are high and availability in high season is very tight.
THINGS TO DO.
- Rent a bike, tour or personal and wander around the streets, and old town (La Parte Vieja)! Its beautiful.
- Checkout El Paseo Nuevo
- PHANTOM BEACH – La Concha Bay (option: 10-minute boat ride offered by Motoras de la Isla – Paseo Mollaberria)
