San Sebastian is 'Donostia' in Basque. The city derives its Basque name from its shell shaped bay.

The most easterly beach in san sebastian, known locally as the wild beach, is often used by serfers
Above photo - Our visit to San Sebastian was in October but the weather was good. The warm day brought many to the beach to enjoy the sun and take a dip in the water.

It was British royalty, and then their Spanish cousins, that established San Sebastian as a resort destination in the 1800's but today it caters to all those's seeking sun, food and fashion.

Eating in San Sebastian is a gastronomy delight. The natives of San Sebastian take their food very seriously, with the majority of citizens belonging to social clubs centering around food preparation.

To book your own cooking lesson in San Sebastian, book your travels with my recommended Spain Travel Agent.

For the shopper, San Sebastian offers and opportunity to explore stylish clothing and accessory at surprisingly reasonable prices.

There is more to San Sebastian than its picturesque sea shore, food and shopping, it has a rich history and vibrant city culture.


I am adding a number of new cities to the Spain Guide, San Sebastian being one of them. For the moment a few photos, but eventually, more pages will appear on San Sebastian.

Go to Laguardia a walled city in the Basque region.
