One of the key dates for all lovers is approaching. Valentine’s Day is around the corner! If you want to surprise your partner in 2019, we encourage you to visit San Sebastian, an ideal city to celebrate this anniversary. Staying in our luxury hotel in the Basque Country, with views of the splendid Bay of the Concha, you will enjoy an unforgettable February 14th. Dream walks, sunsets or romantic restaurants are some of the ingredients that will make your getaway to the capital of Gipuzkoa perfect.

If you are thinking of traveling on Valentine's Day to San Sebastian, take note of all these plans to make as a couple.

Admire the Concha Bay at sunset

La Concha beach is considered one of the best urban beaches in Europe. Strolling along the promenade is almost a must-do for anyone visiting San Sebastian. The route is especially beautiful at dusk, when the sky is dyed with beautiful colours and tranquillity is palpable in the environment. Come with your partner to the Peine del Viento and enjoy an unparalleled show with a backdrop as romantic and incredible as the Cantabrian Sea.

Take the funicular to Mount Igueldo in search of the best views

Mount Igueldo imposes when seen in the distance. It seems impassable, but the reality is that it is possible to climb and contemplate some of the best views of the city. Thanks to a funicular from the early twentieth century, you can start a trip to one of the most emblematic corners of San Sebastian. Not only will you enjoy the tour, but, once up there, you can take the most romantic photograph possible.

Gastronomy is one of the attractions par excellence of the Basque Country. Especially in Donostia, the palate is the first to be conquered. For Valentine's Day, you have several options. On the one hand, you can enjoy an exquisite menu designed for this special date in our hotel.
