2/5  San Sebastian, Basque Coast

San Sebastian is almost as snack-size at its legendary Pintxos. You’ll find fabulous La Concha beach minutes from the maze-like historic quarter, and overlooked by the elegant 19th century ‘new’ town. Block out a morning and go island hopping to Santa Clara. Or ride the city's funicular up to one of Europe’s oldest theme parks, Iguelda. Or, if you’re really feeling adventurous, South West France is half-an-hour's drive east of San Sebastian and all of the Basque Country is just to the west.

What kids love best about San Sebastian

  • Surf lessons on enormous La Concha beach.
  • The historic funicular and Iguelda funfair.
