La Concha Sun Loungers

by richemily

Being a pale pasty Londoner, I need a sunshade when I go to the beach. Does anyone know whether I will be able to hire them on the beach or whether I will need to purchase one from a shop?

Re: La Concha Sun Loungers

I don't remember seeing any organized rental efforts. And, I don't recall any shops near the promenade either.

I think that there's a second beach on the other side of the old town that I have not seen.

You need to check with your hotel. English is spoken widely and the food is the best!

i dont know if you'll be able to hire one, but im sure you can buy them for less than 10€ in one of these 'everything for 1€' shops. and those shops are everywhere. so dont let that make you worried :)

Travel Tips for San Sebastián

Basque Nationalism

by leok

While the Basque country may be part of Spain at present its worth remembering that the locals have a seperate sense of identity to their Castillian neighbours. Over the centuries the Basques have managed to protect their nationality without ever being a nation state for any long stretch of time. Their language predates all other European tongues whilst the region's cooking and fishing skills are legendary.
So long as you don't go about insulting the rich Basque culture there is no real reason to be scared of ETA - the independence terrorist organisation - unless you are a politician for one of the Spanish national parties. However you are likely to see adverts and grafitti put up by its supporters.
So respect the area's unique nationality and you'll have a wonderful time.

If you are interested in learning more about Basque history and how the Basques may have 'discovered' America long before Christopher Columbus it's worth picking up a copy of Mark Kurlansky's excellent 'The Basque History of the World' published by Vintage books.

A quaint little town

by bushes39

Right near the French border is the little town of Hondarribia (Fuentarribia). This is just a beautiful little town, with a nice beach, a wonderfully charming old town, and a nice port. Spend half a day here at least.

Just take the 'I' bus from the Plaza de Gipuzkoa. It's about 1.50 euros.

Graffity: Let the Animals Live !

by FruitLover

That's, more or less, the message of the graffity, in local language.
Just let me remind you that SS / Donostia is the capital of gourmet food, based on animal's MEAT, and that Spanish / Basque people eat animal's MEAT at morning, at noon, at evening and at night.

Konstituzioko plaza

by mikey_e

The Konstituzioko plaza or Plaza de la Constitución is a square in the Alde Zaharra (Parte Vieja) that follows the standard plan of any Plaza Mayor. It is a wide square ringed by buildings that provide a seamless arcade all along the sides of the square. During the day and night it is generally filled with cafes and buskers, much like Plazas Mayores in other cities. The one difference from, say, Madrid, is that this square is far from being the centre of traditional social life in the city. It is true, there are various events held here during the Aste Nagusia, but the sea and the bay are just too beautiful to leave them out of the city’s nightlife, while those who prefer bars and good food seem to be drawn to the smaller streets of the Alde Zaharra and their numerous establishments.

San Sebastian - Donostia

by NunoMorgadinho

Just 21km west of the French border, within the Basque Country, lies Donostia-San Sebastian, the summer capital of Spain. It lies against the Bay of Biscay, surrounded by green mountains. During the summer months the population here swells as the Spanish head here to escape the inland heat. It has about 180,000 inhabitants.

San Sebastian is a tasteful resort without the normal holiday resort trimmings and makes an ideal base from which to explore the Basque Country. This is the capital of the province of Guipuzcoa, the smallest province in Spain. The city offers quiet, natural places just minutes from the city centre and the city is divided into two by the River Urumea.

Getting to San Sebastian is relatively easy as it is linked to most of Spain's major cities by bus. The trains from Madrid to the French border at Irun all stop here. Iberia airlines also offer flights from Madrid to San Sebastian airport.

Donostia-San Sebastian was once a small fishing village and the inhabitants lived facing the sea. They were known to have hunted whales and fished for cod. At one point it was a thriving port, importing wines and oil for France and England. Over the centuries the city has undergone many seiges and in 1808 it was occupied by Napoleon?s soldiers who stayed here until 1813. The city fell into decline in the 19th century but was lifted in 1845 when Queen Isabel II arrived in the city to spend the summer there., a tradition that continued for decades.

Some very nice tourist information here:
