La Concha beach in San Sebastian (Playa Concha) is the best known and the most popular beach of the seaside resort. It extends for more than 1 km and has a fine sand. Central position in the city center facing the islet of Santa Clara and next to the port, it is here that we find the animation throughout the year. The pedestrian promenade borders the beach. It is often cited as one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain ! The environment is composed of a bourgeois building with on the right side the town hall (it is the old casino). In summer it is possible to rent tents and several restaurants on the left side (old sea baths). A very nice place ! On the left side, in continuity, we find the beach of Ondarreta. In August, it is here that a firework festival takes place during a week (it is one of the most important in the world).
