Beach of La Concha

Named after the seashell shape of the The Concha Bay (literally shell), Playa de la Concha in San Sebastián is consistently rated as one of the best beaches in Europe. This sweet Spain beach is highly photographable, with spectacular views of Urgell Mountain on one side and Igueldo Mountain on the other. The beach stretches from the old harbor and city hall for 1,500 meters to what’s known as the Parrot’s Beak. The mountains protect the beach from strong winds and high waves, while the shallow and calm waters make this spot ideal for travelers of all ages. Elsewhere, you can find activities like paddling, sunbathing, and swimming, making it the perfect beach for everyone in the family.
