    Nice beach
    We walked close to this beach today. The weather was nice and there was a lot of people on the beach. This one is about 3-4 kms long. When the sea is high, the beach is reduced. But it’s very pleasant to walk close to it.

    La concha is aptly named. Beautiful!
    Wow! What a fantastic beach! Huge cove with shallow waters safe for all the family. You can swim out to santa Clara island in the middle of the bay. Take a trip to the top as its a bird sanctuary then chill out before a swim back to LA concha. Plenty of eateries surrounding the beach and if you want to view la concha in all its glory a walk to the end if the beach takes you to the funicular. Take a trip for around 4 euros to the viewpoint and amusement park, bar, restaurant at the top. Must have panoramic photos from here of the fantastic la concha beach abd the old town in the background. Simply you cannot go to san sebastian without enjoying this beach!

    A beautiful place we will return to.
    Such a beautiful vista with the coastline and the island. Sand was lovely. When we arrived on a sunny day the beach was very busy, but the next day was not so sunny and it was quiet. We still swam in the sea and felt safe leaving some belongings on the beach.

    Truly one of Spain's best
    La Concha has been named one of the world's best beaches by travelers. And it's worthy of it's title. This is one of my favorite beaches in northern Spain. It's very big, clean and accessible. It's a city beach, so sidewalks and building border it, but that's what makes it so special. After you've spent time on the beach, you are steps away from some of the best food in the country. I've considered moving here, just so I could walk it daily!

La Concha beach in San Sebastian is simply spectacular: its long coastline, crystal clear waters and the charm of its surroundings make it an incomparable place to relax and enjoy the sea, one of the best urban beaches in Europe.

A vast expanse of sand at low tide with beautiful clear water. Beautiful city backdrop. The ban of cigarette smoking on the beach is not really respected but overall it’s a very clean beach with good air and no traffic pollution.

Wow! What a fantastic beach! Huge cove with shallow waters safe for all the family. You can swim out to santa Clara island in the middle of the bay. Take a trip to the top as its a bird sanctuary then chill out before a swim back to LA concha. Plenty of eateries surrounding the beach and if you want to view la concha in all its glory a walk to the end if the beach takes you to the funicular. Take a trip for around 4 euros to the viewpoint and amusement park, bar, restaurant at the top. Must have panoramic photos from here of the fantastic la concha beach abd the old town in the background. Simply you cannot go to san sebastian without enjoying this beach!
