San Sebastian... Something for Everyone

Overview

San Sebastian is one of my favorite cities in Spain... and anyone that has visited many places in Spain knows that that means a lot. San Sebastian has beautiful beaches that are welcoming to families, singles, surfers, the young, and the old. Tree covered mountains (equipped with picturesque hiking trails) slope into the beaches and surround the city. My friend and I climbed up one of the mountains (the one that has a statue of Jesus rising up through the trees), and discovered an old castle that overlooks the harbor.

Pension Amaiur is definitely one of the best hostels experiences I have had.

Kursaal Restaurant at Kursaal Centre

Restaurant | "Kursaal"

Kursaal is a delicious restaurant with an incredible view. The restaurant is a giant glass square set directly on the beach, just across the river from the historic district of town.

The chef is famous in San Sebastian and everything we sampled at the restaurant was delicious.
