How to get here, from San Sebastian
From the center of San Sebastian (Oquendo street), take the bus A2 (a red lined one) to Pasajes. Then, walk along the harbour to a platform where a small bark will make you cross the river (0.50 Euros per person).
Boat from Pasai San Pedro to Pasai Donibane
You can go from the west side of the bay to the east side on a very pretty boat, spending 30 seconds. If you go by car, you will spend 20 minutes for the same trip.
The fishermen?s day
On July 16th, is the saint of the fishermen?s, Karmengo Amaren eguna. The fishermen do not work this day, and there are festivals in a lot of towns of Basque Country; Donostia and Pasaia are two of them. The fishermen?s offer flowers to their saint and pray on board.
Rowers in the bay
On July 31th, the saint of Gipuzkoa, is celebrated a rowing competition in the bay.Koxtape is the team of Pasai Donibane, but Astillero has won.
We can spend the day visiting the surroundings of the shipyard or walking up to the lighthouses of La Plata or Senokozulua.

If you like climbing, you can find an area at the bottom of the east side of the bay. It´s a good experience, to climb near the sea.

Nestor Basterretxea's sculpture
Favorite thing: At the Tower square, is situated the Nestor Basterretxea´s sculpture "In honour of the fishermen and navigators died in the sea", installed in 1971 on the same place where was the old tower of San Pedro.
Fondest memory: Please imagine you`re seeing a gull
