San Sebastian is a wonderful location in which to learn Spanish. San Sebastian is set on a sandy horseshoe bay on the northern coast of Spain, with stunning golden, sandy beaches. This is a beautiful city of narrow streets, restaurants, bars and with a charming historic center. San Sebastian is also an excellent location to learn to surf, with gently sloping sandy beaches and excellent surf all year round.
