San Sebastian holidays

Enjoying a stunning setting on the Bay of Biscay in Spain’s mountainous Basque Country, San Sebastian’s natural beauty is enhanced by its magnificent architecture, plazas and parks, which are dotted throughout the city. Its allure as a seaside retreat began in the early 19th century when it was favoured by royalty escaping the heat of central Spain.

In recent years it has established itself as a world-class gastronomic centre, frequently topping lists of the world’s best places to eat and offering an enticing range of culinary options, from Michelin-starred feasts to delicious bite-sized pintxos (Basque-style tapas) which can be found in the atmospheric bars of the Old Quarter. This outstanding restaurant scene combines with San Sebastian’s beautiful panoramas, broad sweeps of golden beaches, lovely walks and fascinating culture to make it a superb destination for either a long weekend or part of a wider exploration of Spain.
