Two nights in San Sebastian or split time with other Northern seaside towns like Getaria? Recommendations on places to say.
We will have a car, so can explore remote beaches and towns, so deciding whether to stay in San Sebastian and do side trips or stay in smaller villages along the coast.
Well I can't compare to other seaside towns but I would highly recommend. Going to San Sebastian!! When in Spain I also visited Madrid, Pamplona and Barcelona. And I liked San Sebastian the most easily! Nice beach, city is very pretty, excellent food, good hiking and fun bars. Great city for walking and enjoying sights and sounds. People were very friendly and just a very nice vibe to the city in general. Highly Recommended!! Hope this helps. Brayden about 8 years ago
mm... not an easy answer: Donostia-SanSebastian its not the typical city you can visit just a day and leave. Not at all. I would spend 2 days there. On the other hand, there are lots of small lovely coast-villages like Getaria, Lekeitio and more.. which are really wonderful. If I would have a car, I would probably go for this second option.
This is what you are looking for I think: http://tourism.euskadi.net/basque-coast/
I personally would not miss: Lekeitio, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and the Flysch route about 8 years ago
By the way, we knew yesterday Donostia-San-Sebastian will be European Capital of Culture 2016. Congratulations! Nice video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2zTb7Eg9Lk&feature=player_embedded#at=15 about 8 years ago
I´m agree with xabi. Perhaps,to be the first time, the visit of San sebastian could be most respresentative (in this case spend the two days there) but I think that the small villages of the coast have a different magic... really wonderfull places as Xabier says.
In the small villages you can feel the tradicional culture, and on the other hand in San Sebastian you could see the modern face of the basque culture.
Finaly and fortunately, i think that choice of either of the two options, will be a success. I hope to enjoy it! about 8 years ago
