Quite simply, San Sebastián is the jewel in the Basque Country’s crown. This small, vibrant city nestles in a seashell-shaped bay aptly known as La Concha, with rough Atlantic waters that are traditionally famed for their healing properties.
Named European Capital of Culture in 2016, San Sebastián has a whole lot to offer tourists of every type. It has a major Jazz Festival in July and a renowned International Film Festival in late September each year. It has fantastic food; elegant, reasonably-priced hotels; stunning churches, monuments and museums. It has countless bars and clubs, a famously beautiful beach right in the heart of the city – and above all, an unbeatably laid-back, relaxed attitude to life.
Due to its reliably gigantic waves and its fun, party atmosphere, San Sebastián is already a renowned paradise for surfers. What’s a little less well-known, however, is that its generally tolerant approach to cannabis makes it a paradise for cannabis enthusiasts too.
