This beach has a beautiful promonade for walking the entire beach. We walked from old town and enjoyed all the sights along the beach along with people watching. It is a long beach and we walked the entire distance because it is so beautiful.

A must while in San Sebastian, both for a swim and a glass of wine to enjoy the view. Clean water, calm and easy to get there, in the middle of the city.

You will see some people swimming (even in November!) and many others frolicking on the beach, playing soccer or throwing sticks for their dogs. Lit at night as well.

No experience with dog care, I am afraid. We arrived by cruise ship and only there for one day.

Whether you can officially or not - people do take their dogs to the beach. The ones we saw in the evening were having lots of fun.
