Food and Drink in San Sebastian, Cuisine of the Basque Community

San Sebastian is the food capital of Spain, with more Michelin stars per capita than anywhere else in the world. In the bars, the traditional dishes are Pintxos, small tasting plates that would be called tapas in other parts of Spain. The pintxos are lined up on the bar, and patrons can help themselves, expected to keep tabs on how many they have had. Choices might include spider crab tart, filo parcels of salt cod, or canutillos du queso y anchoa (miniature ice cream cones filled with cheese and anchovy). There are any number of exceptional places to sample these, but La Cuchara de San Telmo is particularly good, full of locals and offering standing room only.

Cider is a regional speciality, made from local apples using traditional methods. The cider season runs from the second half of January to the end of April, when you can visit the cider houses for tastings. Txakoli Wine is another local product, young and fruity white wine with moderate alcohol levels of 9.5 to 11.5%. Just make sure you have a sober driver for the campervan first.

Things to do in San Sebastian

Hit the beach! The Concha Bay is 1500 metres of elegant sand that runs from City Hall to the dominant landmark of Monte Urgull. This beach is frequently voted as one of the best in Europe.The mountain stands like a sentry over the city, and remnants of its duties as a fortress in the Middle Ages can still be found. You will also enjoy ‘Casa de la histoire’, History House, atop Mt Urgull, with exhibits of the struggles and sieges in San Sebastian’s past.

Another star on Concha Bay is the small, but perfectly formed, Isla Santa Clara. This tiny island is close enough to swim to, positioned smack in the centre of the bay. It has a sandy beach that disappears completely at high tide, and a lighthouse you can walk to. It also has a convivial bar with seaside terrace.

For those more culturally inclined, be sure to wander the streets of the Old Town. This is laid out in the traditional style, with Plaza de la Constitution at its heart. The colourful buildings that line the square display numbers that date back to when it was a bullfighting ring.

Driving Tips in Spain

It is illegal to use your mobile phone when behind the wheel of your vehicle. You literally have to pull over, get out of your camper or sit in the passenger seat to make or receive a call or text.
