La Concha has been voted as one of the 15 best beaches in Europe and one of the prettiest urban beaches in the world while Ondaretta Beach is located at the foot of Monte Igueldo, nestled between beautiful villas and picturesque gardens. Zurriola Beach, next to the Kursaal Convention Centre, is a surfer's paradise and a haven for beach sports enthusiasts. Three different beaches with three different surroundings - there's something for everyone!
