San Sebastian, Spain

Pairing sunny skies with Spain is like matching tapas with vino! Droves of people head to Spain to dodge the freezing cold winters of northern Europe, as most Spanish regions stay warm throughout the year. The southern part of Spain, in particular, basks in balmy weather and flaunts stunning coastal areas like Cadiz, Marbella, and Málaga. While southern Spain is fantastic for off-season visits, summers can be challenging due to scorching temperatures and hordes of tourists. If you’re seeking a respite from the intense heat, why not consider a trip to San Sebastian in the Basque Country?

With its subtropical climate and mild winters, San Sebastian could easily become your next dream vacation destination! The Bay of La Concha, named for its shell-like shape, sits conveniently within the city and boasts two magnificent beaches: La Concha and Ondaretta. La Concha is widely acclaimed as one of Europe’s finest urban beaches. Beyond its picturesque shores, San Sebastian is famed for its culinary prowess. As the gastronomic capital of Spain, San Sebastian boasts more Michelin Stars per square meter than any other city in the world!
