Default Bilbao airport to San Sebastian?

I'm shortly travelling to San Sebastian and am flying in to Bilbao.
From what i can gather the best way would be to get the bus from the

airport to the centre of Bilbao and then either get the bus or train
from there to San Sebastian. If anyone out there has any advice as to
what the best way to do this then please let me know. I assume there
isn't a bus directly from the airport at Bilbao to San Sebastian? Also
i have read that some trains can take a long time and stop at every
place on the way. I'd like to avoid this if possible, unless the route
is through spectacular scenery or offers something that should not be
missed.

At present i'm thinking of getting the bus service to Plaze Moyua and
then from there getting a train from the Estacion Atxuri with Eusko
Trenibideak to San Sebastian. Is this the best way? Any comments or
anyone who has made this trip (or lives in the area) please let me
know. I can't wait to visit the region. My girlfriend is working there
and it seems like a great place to see. Also if anyone has any comments
on what to see and do once there please let me know (as any help or
advice would be much appreciated).

Matt

Hi Matt

according to this site
http://www.donostia.org/info/visitan...ntenido=471295
the Euskotren to SS stops at Sondika, just 500 m from Bilbao airport.
There is also supposed to be a bus company, Bizkaibus that operates from
Bilbao airport to San Sebastian, but I can't get any more information.
Maybe you girlfriend can check them out?

I've been to Bilbao airport a few times, but I never had to do this
particular trip. Incidentally, bear in mind if you're surfing for info
that San Sebastian in Basque is called Donostia.

Thanks for the advice Tom. I had thought about taking the Euskotren
although i'd need to take the line into Bilbao and then change trains
twice. Plus the train takes 2 hours to get the 50 km or so between
Bilbao and San Sebastian. I will see if i can find some info on that
bus company though as that would be extremely helpful.

As for the previous post of flying into San Sebastian directly. I'd
love to do that however there aren't any budget flights there from the
UK and the cost of flying elsewhere to fly into there just seems to
waste more time than it's worth. If anyone has any other info it would
be much appreciated. Thanks to all for all info on this matter,
Matt
