This island is situated in the middle of the bay between Monte Igeldo and Monte Urgull. It did not always look as it does today, as throughout the city's history it had an important role as a defensive feature. In the 18th century, an attempt was made to unite the island with Mount Igeldo by building a wall. At low tide, the remains of the wall that was never completed can be seen. Today, it is used for leisure purposes and has restaurants, a beach and a small quay. In summer, a boat service takes visitors to the island from the wharf in San Sebastian's port. Times are not available until the season begins.
