Playa de El Puntal, Santander

(4.8/5 based on 420+ 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.

It is a perfect place for the practice of the sport of rowing. If on the other hand like most wild and less tourism beaches, have a few kilometres Berria Beach: a beautiful place has been made and still advertisements are made.
