What’s on in San Sebastian:

There is always lots going on in San Sebastian. Europe’s longest, continually running Jazz Festival (Jazzaldia) is this year on the 22nd to the 26th of July. The summer culminates in a week-long festival called Semana Grande. This year it is being held between the 8th of August and the 15th of August. In addition, September’s main focus is when the city hosts its International Film Festival, for 8 days from the 18th of September until the 26th of September.

San Sebastian Travel Guide

San Sebastian is well known as a popular destination for culinary enthusiasts, families, stag groups, inter-railers and surfers.

Known as Donostia in Basque, it is situated at the North of Spain on the coast of the Bay of Biscay. The city itself is heavily influenced by Basque culture and as a result, you can taste it in the gourmet subculture of pintxos (pronounced “pinch-os”). These are similar to tapas but instead of eating a whole meal in one bar, you travel between bars ordering one or two pintxos at a time (txikiteo). However, for more serious meals, San Sebastian’s restaurants have 13 Michelin stars between them (including 3 with 3 stars each). Furthermore, don’t fancy the walk back to your hotel? Give us a call and we can arrange a taxi for you.

San Sebastian has been chosen by Which? as the top holiday destination by food lovers, beating much larger cities like Tokyo and Paris.

Surfing and nightlife

For partygoers, there is plenty of choice of bars and clubs. However, many young people simply gather on the beach or at the top of Mount Igueldo to party. Try some of the locals’ drinks such as Kalimotxo (red wine + cola), Txakoli (slightly sparkling, dry white wine pronounced “cha-ko-lee”) and Sidra (Basque cider poured from a height). Sidrerias are all over the nearby countryside and are worth a visit. Indeed, if you need a taxi to one of the Sidrerias from San Sebastian, give us a call and we can arrange one for you.

The best surfing beach is La Zurriola, a beach break with a left-hand peak and you can check on the waves on a webcam available here. In addition, many other famous surf breaks are in close proximity, such as Zarautz and Mundaka to the West and Lafitenia and Cote Basques to the North. This corner of the Bay of Biscay is the warmest so no need for a wetsuit in summer.

We also offer transfers from San Sebastian Airport which is located near the border with France at Hondarribia.

Avoid any hassle with bus stations and timetables by using a private transfer to your destination in San Sebastian with Biarritz Airport Transfers.

Our small group was very impressed with the friendly professionalism shown to us - Owen even managed to park right outside our city-centre hotel in Pamplona, and made enquiries on our behalf to find an open restaurant for lunch on our arrival. Happy to recommend this service.

Brilliant service, on time and very pleasant. Easily contactable on phone, email, Whatsapp. Saved all the hassle that usually accompanies getting from airport to holiday destination and return. The chilled water on a very hot day en route was also very welcome. Thank you!

We used Biarritz Aiport Transfers to get from the airport to San Sebastián and back. They were timely, reliable, and safe. I really appreciated the confirmation text the evening before our early morning departure as it put me at ease knowing they were going to arrive on time the following morning. Top notch transportation service (the best we’ve had in our travels thus far). I would highly recommend them!
