San Sebastián (Donostia in Basque) is one of the most popular, and most beautiful, coastal resort cities in all of Spain. It is located in the Basque Country, on the Green Coast along the Bay of Biscay, just twelve miles from the border with France. People come to San Sebastián for a number of reasons, perhaps most importantly for the beaches, the food, and the ambience. The two beaches, Playa de la Concha and Playa de Ondarreta, are connected by a beachside promenade and sit on their own miniature bays. If you are looking to try Basque cuisine, you will eat very well here. San Sebastián`s foodie scene is very diverse, boasting the second-highest number of Michelin-starred restaurants per capita in the world. A sprawling city today, many of the historic sights can be found in the original nucleus, the Old Quarter (Alde Zaharra in Basque), which was encircled by city walls until the 1860s.
