Averages for San Sebastian in November
San Sebastian cools down quite considerably in November. Temperatures now only reach a maximum of around 14°C (57°F) and there are around five hours of sunshine every day.
However, this is still considerably warmer than other parts of Northern Europe at this time of year, so this may be an ideal time of year to visit to catch the last of the summer sun before winter.
The sea is colder and can be quite choppy at this time of year so swimming is not recommended. However, there are many ways to enjoy beautiful La Concha Bay – such as taking a trip on the Funicular Railway, which leads up the side of the cliff overlooking the bay.
The tourist season has now also come to an end so the city will be less crowded, with accommodation to be found much more easily and cheaply.
The biggest event in San Sebastian during November is the marathon. This is attended by athletes from around the world and the route runs right through the centre of the city. Amateur athletes can participate or you can turn up just to cheer on the runners.
November is quite the month for athletes in San Sebastian as the 12 mile (120km) Footrace takes place. Runners race from Benobia into the centre of San Sebastian to be crowned winner out of over 10,000 athletes.
Food lovers will certainly enjoy Gastronomy Week, which takes place this month. Local chefs as well as internationally renowned restaurateurs descend on the Kursaal Centre and compete for various prizes. There are also plenty of cooking demonstrations, tasting sessions and workshops, as well as a trade fair for those in ‘the business’.
