La Concha Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover La Concha

The stylish, charming, peaceful, and majestic bay of 'La Concha' is San Sebastián's most recognisable feature, and is a real pleasure for all the senses. Lined with impressive buildings, covered with fine, light-coloured sand, and with the light softly reflecting off the sea, it is a dreamlike setting further enhanced by the green hills that can be seen surrounding the beach: Monte Urgull, Monte Igueldo (to the west), Santa Clara island (in the middle), and Monte Ulia. All four spots are perfect to enjoy the view of La Concha from afar. This is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Spanish Basque Country. The classic design of the seafront has its own particularities, like the elegant handrail, tamarisks, and of course the promenades. The best memory you can take away from here is of the walk along the seaside that takes you to Eduardo Chillida's El Peine del Viento. What more could you ask for?
