San Sebastián Events and Activities 2017

San Sebastián/Donostia

San Sebastián

San Sebastián is the jewel on the Basque coastline, the coolest of Spanish seaside resorts (the Queen built her summer palace here). Here the European, and indeed global, youth come to play, party and surf under the sun. This is a city with more Michelin stars than any other city in the world, bar Paris, and with a population of a mere 400,000 or so, wowee, they love to dine well. They say San Sebastián has more bars in its Old Town than any other city in Europe, and considering that every second shop is a bar, well, they just can’t be wrong. But just as good as the food in San Sebastián is the fun we have in the summer sun! Our favourite beach is Playa de la Zurriola, of course it is… it’s where all the surf lovers and beach loving babes go. It’s easy to realize your love San Sebastián when you’re sitting enjoying a drink and munching on a delightful pintxo, looking back on an epic day spent surfing and sunbathing on the beach.

Pintxos tours

With more Michelin stars per head than anywhere else in the world, San Sebastián is a foodie’s dream destination. Pintxo bars can be found sprinkled along most streets in San Sebastián’s famous Old Town, but unless you’re a local you won’t know where to find the best ones. It’s difficult to find bad pintxos anywhere in San Sebastián, however knowing where to find the freshest, tastiest and most original ones takes insider knowledge. We make sure you enjoy a delicious local cider or glass of vino with your pintxos too, making it the perfect evening of fun and frivolity. Our guided tours take the intimidation out of this particularly Basque way to enjoy great food, so come join us in our friendly and fun Pintxo tour led by local Stokies. And don’t fret, we let you pay just for what you can fit in your belly, so you won’t spend any more than you need to be completely satisfied.

We do this on a demand basis and we’re always happy to take you to our favourite spots, so hit us up and we’ll organise an afternoon of delicacies for you.
