Spend holidays to San Sebastian exploring its world-class dining scene, lounging on black sands and papping Art Nouveau buildings.
Secret San Sebastian
More classic than glitz and glam, San Sebastian is packed with charm. It's located on the Canary Island
of La Gomera
, which is nearer to Africa than Spain
. This capital city of a lesser-visited island has miles of quaint streets lined with snack bars and top-class restaurants to keep foodies happy.
Beaches for each
The town's framed by beaches, from Playa de la Cueva with views of Tenerife
to the family-friendly Playa de San Sebastian. Nearby, the postcard-worthy shore at Playa de la Concha always has plenty of space. Keen boarders can head one beach over to Playa de la Zurriola for the best waves.
San Sebastian's century-spanning architecture can't be missed. The maze of alleys is steeped in history and scattered with boutiques and bars. Wander the oldest military fortress in the Canaries, Torre del Conde, then visit the Casa de Colon, where Christopher Columbus paid a visit pre-New World exploration.
