The picturesque shoreline makes Donostia a popular resort vacation destination. Its seaside scenery is enhanced by the hilly surroundings.

Donostia is among Spain's most popular tourist destinations. Despite the city's small size, events like San Sebastian International Film Festival give it an international dimension.
