This enormous beach is San Sebastián's top venue for surfing and water sports, especially as summer approaches, when these sands fill with beachgoers from around the world. And the excitement doesn't stop when the sun goes down. One of its top magnets is Zurriola Marítimo (aka ZM), a beach café that turns into a nightspot to keep the party going till well into the wee hours. One highlight of the year out here on this beach is June 23, St. John's Eve, aka Midsummer's Eve, when the shortest night of the year is celebrated with many bonfires, much partying, and a kind of hippie vibe.
