A perfect excursion for having some fish and trying the txakoli.
A very charismatic coastal town.
If you want to try some delicious regional fish and discover a town with lots of personality, visit Getaria. It's a little over half an hour from San Sebastián by bus. This is the hometown of the sailor Juan Sebastián Elcano and of Balenciaga, a famous haute couture designer. The entire coast, the port and the jetty still retain the spirit of a seafaring town. It is worth noting the silhouette of Mount San Antón, which is known as the Getaria mouse because of its resemblance to that rodent. From there, you have an interesting panoramic view of the Basque coast. After your walk, find a restaurant and get ready to enjoy the best fish in the area. And don't forget some traditional txakoli, the local wine, which is fabulous and made at the local wineries, where you can also try it. This area has the Txakoli de Getaria designation of origin.
