Playa de El Puntal, Santander
(4.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Take in the sun at Playa de El Puntal. Swim or surf in the clear, clean water, or play some sports on the large, roomy beach. There is a variety of bars and restaurants to choose from, and the beach is generally not too crowded. If you want a full-body tan, there is a nude section of the beach. A ferry runs every 15 minutes from the maritime museum in Santander Bay, but you can reach the beach by car as well. Put Playa de El Puntal and other Santander attractions into our Santander itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • natural beach of the beautiful Bay of Santander... Very close to santander with the boats of Pedreña or moving to somo and strolling... good plan for Beach Sundays in summer!

  • Dangerous for swimmers who do not know the Cantabrian Sea and its currents. A luxury for the rest. The birthplace of surfing in Spain. The best walking and jogging. 10 kms only from long
