Santa Clara Island


Few cities can lay claim to an island smack bang in the centre of their bays and San Sebastián is one of them. Enjoy its tiny beach with views of the city, a stroll to the singular lighthouse building, the paths with their picnic areas or a coffee sitting in the sun outside a bar. Close to the bay's beaches, it is also possible to swim out there all year round.


The island, declared to be a Historical National Interest Site 40 years ago, has bars, restaurants and life guards in the summer so you can swim off the jetty or the beach or in its hidden nooks.


A boat service runs to and from the Island at Easter and from 1st June to 30th September.
