You can get here by boat (rented or regular service from port) or swimming and once here there is a swimming area, a bar, and numerous hiking trails that lead you to some great views and secluded spots. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Took the small ferry out to the island where we spent a lovely couple of hours sunbathing and swimming off the quayside. The friendly bar serving food & drinks just makes the whole experience perfect. Def recommended !

On a beautiful sunny day, and in full on holiday mood, we took the "round the bay" boat trip to the island and back. It was a lovely trip and well worth doing. We didn't land on the island, and even in early June there...More

The Isla de Santa Klara is around 350 meters from the shoreline and most regular swimmers will find the journey easy. Having checked with the lifeguard, we swam from the western edge of La Concha beach, stopping at one of the floating platforms along the...More

You can get a ferry to the island from the old port. They are very frequent and the trip takes about ten minutes. The island is small with well defined paths around it. Views offer a lovely and very different perspective of San Sebastián and...More
