Here are a few ideas to make your visit to San Sebastián a perfect one.
You can´t miss them...
Eating a pintxo: Going for pintxos in San Sebastián is a way to learn about our culture; you’ll enjoy laughs and conversation as you stay on the move, visit busy bars and generally have a great time.
Having your picture taken in the Concha Bay: The Concha Bay is San Sebastián’s snapshot par excellence: it is the most typical, the one most pictures are taken of, the most visited... The Concha Beach is right in the city centre.
Visit the Chillida Leku Museum: The work of the sculptor Eduardo Chillida (San Sebastián, 1924-2002) meets nature in its purest state at the Chillida-Leku museum that reopens its doors after being closed for several years.
Taking a seven kilometre stroll from the Zurriola beach to the Peine del Viento sculptures (closed for works) : This stroll offers you the chance to discover all three beaches in San Sebastián. Relax and enjoy the beauty of the way.
Discovering the districts of San Sebastian: San Sebastián is divided into three main areas, each with its own personality, partly reflected in its three magnificent beaches.
Enjoying the parks and nature: San Sebastián has a marvellous natural green landscape, surrounded by mountains and with numerous parks and gardens. Discover our mountains, parks and gardens and enjoy the city's most natural side
The city has a wide and varied selection of museums to satisfy even the most curious minds with their excellent exhibitions and modern installations.
Eating the first ice cream of the season: One of our spring and summer traditions is to eat the wonderful ice cream of Donostia. A ice cream cone or a tub of ice cream?

Where to eat?
You’re in San Sebastián! … The foodie Mecca, the crème de la crème of good eating and finger-licking cuisine. Here you'll find whatever you want, from Michelin stars (did you know that San Sebastián is the city with most Michelin stars per square metre in the world?) to pintxo bars, vegetarian options, cider houses, restaurants serving international cuisine... As many suggestions as there are colours. Don’t waste time, consult our Restaurant Guide.
You still have time! There is no tradition more typically Basque than going to a cider house. This means tasting some of the best Basque ciders that are poured directly from the barrel to the shout of Txotx! This custom began as a private tasting session among wholesalers who came to the cider houses to pick the best ciders. Over time, this custom really caught on and became the most famous gastro-event in the Basque Country.
