Embrace the Basque Country in glorious San Sebastian.
The city is home to some of Europe's very best beaches - La Concha being the most famous. Stretching more than one and a half kilometres, and throwing up fantastic city views, this is often ranked among the top beaches on the continent, and is the perfect place to spend those warm summer days.
Among the many other highlights is the Old Town packed with charming bars and restaurants - a great place to sample some of the food and drink the place is so famous for (be sure to grab some Pintxos), and soak up the buzz and atmosphere of the city.
If exploring is your thing then Mount Urgull and Mount Igeldo are well worth checking out. Both offer spectacular views of San Sebastian and out to sea.
