1. Ride the Funicular.
One of the icons of Donostia is Mount Igueldo, an impressive mountain that houses an amusement park dating from the early twentieth century. The appearance at the Belle Epoque, makes the park one of the most charming places in San Sebastian. Contemplate the city from Mount Igueldo is already a feast for the eyes, but it is best to enjoy the ride to the top. To do this, there is a quaint funicular that still retains its original state. Undoubtedly, it is a memorable experience accessible to all visitors.

2. Catamaran Excursion.
A different way to visit Donostia is to aboard a catamaran. Browse the beautiful bay of La Concha in one of these vessels will be an ideal plan even if you are traveling with children. For the little ones, the feeling of riding the waves and seeing the city in the distance is incredible. In addition, this promenade goes through most of the points near the coast, such as the Peine del Viento or Plaza Zurriola interest.

3. Boat to the island of Santa Clara.
Santa Clara Island is a little gem which not everyone has the opportunity to access. To do this, there is a boat service operated only during the summer to bring everyone this charming island. It is a flirty beach where you can dip in the water on hot days and walk to the nice lighthouse.
