San Sebastian Spain day trips: Pasaia by boat from San Sebastian

During the summer season the plans and activities multiply. It’s time to go to the beach, walk through the emblematic neighbourhoods of San Sebastian and, in short, enjoy the outdoors. If you are thinking about going to Donostia this summer, we encourage you to stay at our luxury hotel in Donostia and make the most of everything that this city has to offer. On this occasion, we propose a plan that you cannot refuse. How would you like to get to the lovely Pasaia from San Sebastian aboard a catamaran? It is your opportunity to make an unforgettable seafront promenade!

Pasaia is one of those places that do not go unnoticed. As soon as you cross the estuary of its natural harbour, you discover two of its treasures. We are referring to the towns of San Juan (Pasai Donibane Spain) and San Pedro (Pasai San Pedro), two locations located facing each other. Both stand out for their colourful houses and squares full of life. Hence, Pasaia is one of the unavoidable places to visit in San Sebastian Spain. The best thing is that not only the destination will be worthwhile, but also the way to reach it.

San Sebastian boat trip – Where to take the catamaran in Donostia

The catamaran service that covers the San Sebastian-Pasaia route operates only for two weeks in the month of August. Normally, it is available from August 7 to 20 with a single departure every day in the morning. Places are limited, so you should book in advance if you do not want to miss the opportunity.

The meeting point is, in its case, the Donostia-San Sebastián dock, from where the motorboat will depart punctually towards Pasaia. The company that carries out this route is Itxaszerbi, so you can get more information on its website.

What you will see during the crossing

If you have always wondered how La Concha beach looks from afar, you can now check it on board this catamaran. And it will cross the Bay of La Concha to continue towards Pasaia. You will skirt Mount Urgull and have the chance to visualize a different perspective of the emblematic Zurriola beach, the one for delights surfers.

After leaving behind the coast of San Sebastian, you will see an incredible area of cliffs that leaves you with your mouth open. After passing near the Lighthouse of the Silver, you will already be in the natural entrance that ends at the port of Pasaia. The Basque Maritime Factory of Albaola, Mater Museum or the house of Victor Hugo are just some of the monuments that you will find on your path.

And finally, around 30 minutes after embarking on the pier of San Sebastian, you will touch land and you can start your journey through beautiful Pasaia. Enjoy your excursion!

I hope you enjoy an unforgettable stay at our hotel in San Sebastian Spain! Do not hesitate to contact our staff if you require any information.
